Sun 11/27 Stream: Attempting to repair a non-working Game Gear. (We already re-capped it.) twitch.tv/baldengineer

Does macOS have a generic USBTMC driver?

Is it really a Black Friday special if the price is offered “all month long?”
Also, is it the holiday season if someone doesn’t point this out each year?

A special guest star joins me to help explain how to generate Bode Plots from measurements... youtube.com/watch?v=I0rDMj6QXf

Other than the direction electrons move, are there any other "wait, wut?" moments to realize about electronics?

In Windows, pyvisa cannot see USBTMC devices. In Linux, I can see them fine, but one just randomly stops responding.

Fortunately, it seems like LAN works most of the time.

(It's all made easier if you use NI-VISA, but after reading its licensing, you cannot use it when you are not working with either NI hardware or software...)

If I spend anymore time with pyvisa and USBTMC, I'm going to have even less hair on my head than I do.

80% of the time spent writing instrument automation code is getting to the first success *IDN?.
