Examples and How To

Discover Hardware Devices

This example shows how to discover devices on your system.

Create a Session

This example shows how to create a session and add channels to the session and use the session to acquire and generate data.

Transition Your Code to Session-Based Interface

This topic helps you transition your code from the legacy interface to the session-based interface.


Data Acquisition Session

Workflow for acquiring and sending data via a session.

About the Session-Based Interface

A session is the interface that provides communication between the toolbox and your data acquisition device.
