Data Acquisition Toolbox™ Support Package for Digilent Analog Discovery™ Hardware enables you to communicate with an Analog Discovery portable USB DAQ device remotely from a computer running MATLAB®. Using the command line interface, you can read analog input data from oscilloscope channels, generate analog output data for the function generators, and measure behavior of the circuit and IC components.
This support package is functional for R2013a and beyond.
This did not work for me under 2016b, with a known working Analog Discovery. The issue is that the acquisition hangs, requiring a kill/restart of Matlab. My AD works fine using the Waveforms 2015 package provided by Digilent. PC is running Windows 10, x64.
I did a web search, and found other people complaining about similar problems with this package; no working resolutions were provided.
My advice is to skip this package, not worth the effort to debug. The AD can't perform long acquisitions at any high sampling rate anyways due to USB bandwidth.
When I try to install this support package, either by downloading it through the support package installer, or by downloading it from this page, I get the following error:
"Expected input to be nonempty"
I'm then returned to the confirmation screen, where I'm prompted to hit "Install" to begin the process again.
I'm running MATLAB R2015a 64-bit on Windows 7 64-bit, and have already installed the Waveforms software separately.
