This set of seven application notes shows you how to simplify test system integration by utilizing open connectivity standards such as local area networking (LAN). The collective goal of these notes is to help you produce reliable results, meet your throughput requirements and stay within your budget.

Using LAN in Test Systems: PC Configuration, the third note in the series, describes the additional capabilities required to enable communication between a PC and LAN-enabled instrumentation. This note is a companion to Application Notes 1465-9 and 1465-10. AN 1465-9, Using LAN in Test Systems: The Basics, addresses the benefits of using a LAN interface in a test system. AN 1465-10, Using LAN in Test Systems: Network Configuration, describes the structure and basic configuration of two secure topologies for LAN-based test systems.
