I'm using an LTC2666 with a DC590B evaluation board to output a DC signal on each of the 8 channels. Ideally, I'd like to be able to programatically control the boards, so I could for instance sweep over a wide voltage range and measure some response. QuikEval doesn't allow me to do this. Is there any way to interface with Python or MATLAB and control the LTC2666? I've seen the LTSketchbook, which suggests this functionality, but LinearLabTools doesn't offer compatibility with the LTC2666.
Someone is currently looking into this thread and will respond to you as soon as possible.
The easiest way to program the LTC2666 is through LTsketchbook and arduino. You can write your own custom interface and micro controller code. If you want to use python/matlab you will need to write your own protocol to talk to the LTC2666 thru the DC590. It is possible but it will be more work.
Here is the protocol to talk to the DC590 with python or any other serial port. USB_Controller_specification_Customer_Version.pdf
