MathWorks , a leading developer of mathematical computing software announces the release of R2010b Data Acquisition Toolbox that supports CompactDAQ hardware.
The data acquisition toolbox now enables engineers and scientists to use National Instruments’ CompactDAQ data acquisition hardware directly from MATLAB.
The data acquisition toolbox supports more than 25 CompactDAQ devices, providing access to measurements that include voltage, current and temperature.
Key features of the new data acquisition toolbox:
- Enables customers to acquire data simultaneously from multiple CompactDAQ modules using either background acquisition or foreground acquisition
- Background acquisition allows engineers to analyse and visualise the data as they collect it
- Foreground acquisition enables engineers to collect their data in blocks for post analysis in MATLAB
- New API lets engineers control these devices and acquire data from them using only a few lines of MATLAB code
MathWorks’ data acquisition toolbox supports devices from National Instruments, Measurement Computing, Data Translation and Advantech among other manufacturers.
Data acquisition toolbox is immediately available for Microsoft Windows platform.
