NI-SCOPE (English | Japanese)

NI-SCOPE is both the application programming interface (API) and the instrument driver that controls your NI high-speed digitizer. NI-SCOPE is included with all NI high-speed digitizers.


NI-SCOPE has the following features:

  • Complies with the IVI-Scope driver class specification
  • Handles continuous acquisition and multiple device synchronization
  • Seamlessly integrates with National Instruments LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI, as well as conventional programming languages such as C/C++ and Visual Basic
  • Includes more than 50 built-in measurement and analysis functions
  • Processes waveform measurements in software rather than in hardware

The NI-SCOPE driver provides flexibility and programmability in a standard full-featured instrument driver format.


To help you get started, NI-SCOPE comes with examples you can use or modify. You can find shortcuts to the examples for each ADE at Start»All Programs»National Instruments»NI-SCOPE»Examples.
