Zurich Instruments drivers for QCoDeS

Project description

Zurich Instruments Drivers for QCoDeS (zhinst-qcodes)

The Zurich Instruments drivers for QCoDeS (zhinst-qcodes) is a package of instrument drivers for devices produced by Zurich Instruments for QCoDeS. QCoDeS is a Python-based data acquisition framework developed to serve the needs of nanoelectronic device experiments, but not limited to that. It is intended to be used within QCoDeS and not as standalone package. The QCoDeS instrument drivers are based on the Zurich Instruments Toolkit. So if you are looking for a framework independent high level python API, zhinst-toolkit it the right place for you.


The zhinst-qcodes is well tested and considered stable enough for general usage. The interfaces may have some incompatible changes between releases. Please check the changelog when updating.

Refactoring with version 0.3

Version 0.3 is a more or less complete new driver and breaks the API compared to the previous version in many ways. If you upgrade from an older version take a look at the dedicated documentation page for more information.


Install the package with pip:

pip install zhinst-qcodes


See the documentation page here. Since zhinst-qcodes is based on zhinst-toolkit and has exactly the same interface and functions, the documentation for zhinst-toolkit can be applied nearly one to one and has much more examples.


We welcome contributions by the community, either as bug reports, fixes and new code. Please use the GitHub issue tracker to report bugs or submit patches. Before developing something new, please get in contact with us.
