Hardware Support from Data Acquisition Toolbox

Acquire data from USB, PXI, and PCI data acquisition devices from National Instruments, Measurement Computing, Data Translation and other vendors.

Using Data Acquisition Toolbox to acquire an input signal from a data acquisition board directly into MATLAB. The acquired data is displayed simultaneously as a time-domain signal, an instantaneous FFT, and a waterfall plot, making use of MATLAB signal processing and visualization capabilities.

You can develop data acquisition systems using MATLAB® and Data Acquisition Toolbox™ with support for multiple hardware manufacturers. This support gives you the flexibility to connect DAQ hardware from multiple manufacturers when creating MATLAB applications, or to switch data acquisition hardware in the future while continuing to use MATLAB as your software environment. Data Acquisition Toolbox also supports sound acquisition and sound generation using Microsoft® Windows® compatible sound cards.

Data Acquisition Toolbox also provides Simulink® with blocks that enable you to incorporate live data or hardware configuration directly into Simulink models. You can verify and validate your model against live, measured data as part of Model-Based Design. The blocks in Data Acquisition Toolbox that support Simulink are available only for data acquisition devices that can be used with the legacy interface.
