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: Setting Up System I/O, the seventh note in the series, describes the components of the Agilent IO Libraries Suite and presents a quick, six-step process that will make LAN-based instrument connections as simple as using GPIB. This note is a companion to Application Notes 1465-9 through 1465-11, which address the benefits of using a LAN interface in a test system, describe secure topologies for LAN-based test systems, and explain how to enable communication between a PC and LAN-based instrumentation.
