Instrumentation

Designers of next generation instrumentation and test solutions have the unique challenge of designing custom hardware and software solutions for a niche market that requires cutting edge technology. MATLAB and Simulink tools help instrumentation engineers to:

  • Design and model instrumentation platforms
  • Implement sensor designs with production code generation
  • Integrate models with live instruments and data

System-Level Hardware Design

Engineers use MATLAB and Simulink tools to accelerate the design of test and measurement systems by supplying algorithmic development capabilities in MATLAB that work with system-level behavioral modeling in Simulink. Together, engineers can design and simulate a complete hardware architecture faster than with lower levels of abstraction.

Develop Production Algorithms

Many of today's most sophisticated measurement systems implement a majority of algorithms in software running on a DSP or SoC. These design engineers use MATLAB and Simulink to model their complex signal processing designs and generate production quality code ready for implementation on embedded devices.

Connecting to Instrumentation

In addition to data and image acquisition, Instrument Control Toolbox™ allows engineers to generate data in MATLAB to send out to an instrument, or read data into MATLAB for analysis and visualization. You can automate tests, verify hardware designs, and build test systems based on LXI, PXI, and AXIe standards.
