From a single environment, MathWorks data acquisition products let you connect directly to:
Direct access to these data sources also enables automation of repetitive tasks.
Analyze information stored in ODBC- and JDBC-compliant databases using MATLAB and database connectivity tools. You can access and write data from and to popular databases such as Oracle®, Sybase®, Microsoft® SQL Server™, and Informix® using Structured Query Language (SQL) commands. If you are not familiar with SQL, you can interact with a database using the built-in Visual Query Builder.
Financial professionals building computational finance applications in MATLAB can use MathWorks data feed connectivity tools to access data directly from financial data service providers. This connection enables access to live and historical market data for use in complex financial and analytical models. You can use graphical interfaces to open a connection, specify search parameters, and retrieve data for visualization and analysis in MATLAB without writing code.
When working with devices that conform to the OPC Foundation Data Access standard, such as distributed control systems, supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and programmable logic controllers, OPC Toolbox™ lets you exchange data with the OPC server. You can also read and analyze data from any data historian that conforms to the OPC Foundation Historical Data Access (HDA) standard.
