You can control and acquire data from oscilloscopes directly from MATLAB using Instrument Control Toolbox. Because you can control the instrument directly from MATLAB, there is no need to save the data and import it at a later time, simplifying data analysis and the creation of automated tests. You can also create graphical interfaces for collecting and analyzing data, visualizing the results, and automating tests.
By using SCPI commands described in the operating or programming manual for your oscilloscope, you can control and acquire data from any oscilloscope over any of these supported interfaces:
Many oscilloscope manufacturers supply industry-standard instrument drivers that you can use directly from MATLAB. Instrument Control Toolbox provides connectivity through instrument drivers such as:
