Instrument Control Toolbox
MATLAB supports the use of VXIplug&play instrument drivers through Instrument Control Toolbox. You can use MATLAB software to control instruments, make measurements, analyze data, and build test systems. Once data is in MATLAB, you can analyze and visualize that data for tasks such as signal processing, statistical analysis, digital filtering, and curve fitting.
VXIplug&play is an instrument driver standard that is based on VISA. VXIplug&play instrument drivers often ship with an instrument or are available from the manufacturer’s Web site.
Once you install the VXIplug&play driver on your computer, you can automatically generate a MATLAB VXIplug&play instrument driver from the VXIplug&play driver. Before generating a MATLAB VXIplug&play instrument driver, search for preconfigured MATLAB VXIplug&play instrument drivers.
If a VXIplug&play driver is not available for your instrument, you can communicate with your instrument either by using an IVI instrument driver or by directly communicating with the instrument over these communication protocols:
