Configuration of the instrument is performed over three distinct tabs of the dialog:

  • Signals – used to define base instrument options, including specification of the configuration file and how it is retrieved by Altium Designer.
  • Design – used to create the customized GUI with which to interact with the instrument at run-time.
  • Code – used to write any underlying script code used, for example, in the processing of instrument IO.
