Instrument Control Toolbox™ lets you connect MATLAB® directly to instruments such as oscilloscopes, function generators, signal analyzers, power supplies, and analytical instruments. The toolbox connects to your instruments via instrument drivers such as IVI and VXIplug&play, or via text-based SCPI commands over commonly used communication protocols such as GPIB, VISA, TCP/IP, and UDP. You can also control and acquire data from your test equipment without writing code.
With Instrument Control Toolbox, you can 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.
For remote communication with other computers and devices from MATLAB, the toolbox provides built-in support for TCP/IP, UDP, I2C, SPI, and Bluetooth® serial protocols.
