A Python Package for Interfacing with the Bridge12 MPS

Project description


pyB12MPS is a python package for interfacing with Bridge12 MPS.

The complete online documentation for the Bridge12 MPS is available here.

The complete online documentation for pyB12MPS is available here.


  • Python3 (>= 3.6)
  • numpy, pySerial

Communicating with the Bridge12 MPS

First make sure the Bridge12 MPS is connected to the computer via a USB cable and the system is powered ON.

In a terminal window, start a python environment


To start the MPS Server:

import pyB12MPS as mps


The MPS will reset and the python environment will hang until the connection has been established. The server will run in the background until the stop command is sent.

To stop the MPS Server:


Sending MPS Commands

Once the connection has been established, you can use a python terminal or script to send commands to the MPS.

import pyB12MPS as mps

mps.freq(9.4) # set frequency to 9.4 GHz

mps.freq() # Query the microwave frequency in GHz

Example Script

import pyB12MPS as mps
import time

# Test if server is running
if mps.test(): # 0 indicates normal operation of server
    mps.start(debug = True)

# Number of Rx voltage points to acquire
pts = 10

# Time delay between measurements in seconds
dt = 0.5

rxVoltageList = []

for ix in range(pts):
    # delay

    # Read MPS Rx diode voltage
    rxVoltage = mps.rxpowermv()

    # Print Rx voltage reading
    print('Rx Voltage: %0.01f'%rxVoltage)


print('Rx Voltage Readings:')
