Moku integration for Python API

Integrate with Python

There is no limit to what you can do with Python integration for Moku hardware, from real-time interfacing to automated control. Take advantage of the wide array of open-source libraries to further expand your applications.


Interact in real-time

Write and share scripts for repeatable automation or command your Moku hardware live, record and analyze your data all in a single place by partnering our Python API with Jupyter.


Automated control

The Python API takes Moku hardware to the next level, turning it into an automated test, measurement, and control device for your lab. Python integration enables your Moku to automatically:

  • Switch instruments
  • Acquire and process measurements in real-time
  • Save data logs/metadata for post-processing
  • Generate output signals to control your system
>> data = oscilloscope.get_data()

Open-source integration

Add depth to your Moku applications by integrating with the many open-source Python libraries available on the web.

Create beautiful visualisations with seaborn, or track progress of your experiment remotely by streaming to the web using plotly. Got data? Pandas provides an endless list of high-performance data structures and easy-to-use analysis tools to get the job done.



Moku’s Python API can be dropped in to any existing lab infrastructure. It’s fully supported on Windows, Linux, OSX, and in many cases can be installed without special privileges.

Share your programs with all your colleagues and computers, regardless of operating system; they’ll run anywhere.

Supported hardware platforms

Python integration is available across all Moku hardware platforms.
