Data Acquisition Toolbox provides a complete set of tools for analog input, analog output, and digital I/O from a variety of PC-compatible data acquisition hardware. The toolbox lets you configure your external hardware devices, read data into MATLAB and Simulink for immediate analysis, and send out data.
You can customize your acquisitions, access the built-in features of hardware devices, and incorporate the analysis and visualization features of MATLAB and related toolboxes into your design. You can analyze or visualize your data, save it for post-processing, and make iterative updates to your test setup based on your analysis results. Data Acquisition Toolbox allows you to use MATLAB as a single, integrated environment to support the entire data acquisition, data analysis, and application development process.
Data Acquisition Toolbox also supports Simulink with blocks that enable you to incorporate live data or hardware configuration directly into Simulink models. You can then verify and validate your model against live, measured data as part of the system development process.
Key Features Controls and communicates with a variety of industry-standard data acquisition devices Acquires live, measured data directly into MATLAB or Simulink for immediate analysis Provides a single integrated environment for data acquisition, analysis, and visualization Performs "one shot" or continuous data acquisition Configures and accesses analog input, analog output, and digital I/O Streams data into a graphical display using the SoftScope software oscilloscope Directly Interfaces to device-specific features, such as single-channel and multichannel acquisitions and single-point and buffered analog I/O Controls acquisitions with hardware and software triggers Provides a consistent software interface for easy substitution of hardware boards and vendors
