Analog Data Acquisition

Configure analog input channels and channel properties

Before you use analog input channels, see Hardware Discovery and Session Setup.


addAnalogInputChannel Add analog input channel
inputSingleScan Acquire single scan from all input channels
startForeground Start foreground operations
startBackground Start background operations
removeChannel Remove channel from session object
stop Stop background operation
wait Block MATLAB until background operation completes
