MATLAB® can support certain VXI Technology data acquisition devices through the Data Acquisition Toolbox and this adaptor. This MATLAB adaptor is for use with Data Acquisition Toolbox v2.13 and higher.
To install this adaptor, download the VXI_Technology_Adaptor.zip file and follow the instructions in README_VXI_Technology.txt.
Note: If you are installing these adaptors for R2008b please follow the instructions here:
Information on using MATLAB and Data Acquisition Toolbox for communication with plug-in data acquisition hardware is available at:

This adaptor supports the following VXI Technology devices:
VXI HP E1432A
HP E1432A with Arbitrary Source Option 1D4
HP E1433A with Arbitrary Source Option 1D4
HP E1434A with Additional Source Option 1D4
In case you have problems with the above adapter: The VTI driver (which happens to be a VXI Plug&Play driver) comes with a COM interface, a MEX file interface, and MATLAB examples for both kinds of interfaces.
The driver for the VTI 1432 (which used to be the HP 1432) can be downloaded from here:
When you install it,
- The COM interface (and MATLAB COM examples) are under C:\Program Files\VXI Technology\ME
- The mex file and MATLAB mex examples are under C:\Program Files\VISA\winnt\vt1432
- The VXIPnP driver is in C:\Program Files\VXI Technology\ME\bin\vt1432_32.dll
Note that you need to install VISA software to use the VXI PnP driver (either Agilent VISA, NI VISA, or Tektronix VISA). For example, here is the Agilent VISA library
It does not work, both for 2006b and 2008a
