The Model 990 is an extremely versatile tool that provides the link between
simulation and test. The Model 990 controller combines the power of MATLAB and the power of the Model 990 hardware. The controller provides a simple command to control the unit from the MATLAB environment. The controller includes the acquisition or "snapshot" of data into Model 990 memory, which can be written into a MATLAB vector. Once the snapshot data is brought into the MATLAB environment, the user can take advantage of MATLAB's processing and graphical capabilities. MATLAB generated data can also be loaded into the "playback" memory of Model 990. The data can then, in real time, be played out on digital or analog output port serving as a highly flexible, custom test signal generator.
