DAQ Adaptor for MATLAB®

Interface to MATLAB

MATLAB® from The MathWorks® is a software environment and programming language used for data acquisition, data analysis, measurement automation, and application development. Use MATLAB with the Data Acquisition Toolbox™ and the DAQ Adaptor for MATLAB to interface MATLAB with Data Translation hardware. With these tools, a Data Translation DAQ module can be configured within MATLAB to access the analog and digital I/O features of the hardware device.

All DT-Open Layers-compliant Data Translation's USB and PCI modules can be accessed for a full range of performance capabilities. Users can incorporate the analysis and visualization features of MATLAB into the design to analyze data, save the data for post-processing, and make changes based on analysis results.

The DAQ Adapter for MATLAB is a free download.

The legacy DAQ Adaptor for MATLAB allows users of a 32-bit version of MATLAB(R) to access Data Translation analog and digital I/O modules for data acquisition and analysis applications. Note that the 32-bit version of MATLAB and the Data Acquisition toolbox can be installed on a 64-bit Windows OS, if needed.
The DAQ Adaptor for MATLAB requires the installation of the latest DT Omni Software.
