User contributed drivers for QCoDeS

Project description

This repository contains QCoDeS instrument drivers developed by members of the QCoDeS community. These drivers are not supported by the QCoDeS developers but instead supported on a best effort basis by the developers of the individual drivers.

Getting started


The drivers in this repository work with and heavily depend on QCoDeS. Start by installing QCoDeS .


Install the contrib drivers with pip

pip install qcodes_contrib_drivers


This repository is open for contribution of new drivers, as well as improvements to existing drivers. Each driver should contain an implementation of the driver and a Jupyter notebook showing how the driver should be used. In addition we strongly encourage writing tests for the drivers. An introduction for writing tests with PyVISA-sim can be found in the QCoDeS documentation linked below.

Drivers are expected to be added to qcodes_contrib_drivers/drivers/MakerOfInstrument/ folder while examples should be added to the docs/examples folder and tests placed in the qcodes_contrib_drivers/tests/MakerOfInstrument folder. Please follow naming conventions for consistency.

For general information about writing drivers and how to write tests refer to the QCoDeS documentation. Especially the examples here are useful.
