File Information

The first channel of the analog output is connected to the analog input of the USB Data Acquisition module on a loopback.

Models in the family that supports the data acquisition toolbox are the U2531A, U2541A, and U2542A.
In order to use these devices with the MATLAB data acquisition toolbox software, you need to install MATLAB and Agilent software components and applications, connect the USB multifunction DAQ device, and install the respective drivers.
This example requires the instrument’s respective IVI-COM instrument driver to be installed in order to operate. This driver can be downloaded for free at:
This example also requires VISA software to be installed in order to connect to the instrument using IVI-COM drivers. The software is included in the Agilent IO Libraries and is available for download at:
