Enter search terms or a module, class or function name. See section Serial devices for further 8235a7 about serial devices. In some cases it may be necessary to set the byte orderalso known as endianness. Those 20 kilobytes are large enough so that mostly one read cycle is sufficient. It bases on earlier experiences by Thalhammer. Unfortunately, PyVISA must make space for the data before it starts reading, which means that it must know how much data the device will send.
