Written for engineers, Instrumentation Control, Data Acquisition and Processing with MATLAB enables the reader to understand the basics of instrumentation control and data acquisition, and to perform such tasks using MATLAB and Instrument Control Toolbox. The book explains how to set up both PC and instrumentation to establish a reliable connection either via LAN or GPIB interfaces. Topics include hardware requirements and configuration, communicating with instruments through MATLAB, sending commands and reading responses, and creating device objects using MATLAB device drivers. Three videos are also available that illustrate how to create instrument and device objects, execute several scripts included in the book, and how to create UIs for instrumentation control using GUIDE.
MATLAB is used to solve numerous examples in the book.
