Tools for talking to the VESNA spectrum sensor applicaiton
This Python module abstracts the serial line protocol used by the VESNA spectrum sensor application and provides a high-level object-oriented Python interface.
To install system-wide from the package index, run:
$ pip install vesna-spectrumsensor
To install system-wide from source, run:
$ pip install .
To run provided unit tests, run:
The minimal application using this module looks like the following:
# instantiate the SpectrumSensor class using the path # to the serial device. spectrumsensor = SpectrumSensor("/dev/ttyUSB0") # query the attached hardware for supported configurations. config_list = spectrumsensor.get_config_list() # get required frequency sweep configuration. sweep_config = config_list.get_sweep_config(...) # define callback function that does something with # measurements. def callback(sweep_config, sweep): ... # start spectrum sensing spectrumsensor.run(sweep_config, callback)
Please refer to docstring documentation for details.
The package also installs vesna_rftest script that performs a series of automated hardware tests using a USBTMC attached RF signal generator. Run “vesna_rftest –help” to get a list of available options.
