Write 24-bit binary

13 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I wonder if it is possible to write a binary file (ie: fwrite) with 24-bit precision in Matlab (2010b)? I use Matlab for generating a waveform which is later being read by Labview and presented through a NI 24-bit DAC (NI PCI-4461) with 200 kHz.
Thanks a lot for your support,

Have you tried using a specification of bit24 for the precision in fwrite() ?

Ah,merci, obviously I didn't read the help for "fwrite" properly. "bitn" for precision is the solution. Problem solved - thanks a lot
