USB Devices and MATLAB
Many instruments, data acquisition devices, cameras, and other hardware connect to a computer through a USB cable. MATLAB enables you to control and acquire data from these devices using:
Interfacing with USB Instruments using Instrument Control Toolbox
Using MATLAB and Instrument Control Toolbox, you can work with any USB instrument that offers remote USB connectivity through VISA software, such as the following:
You communicate with these instruments by sending SCPI commands over the VISA-USB interface. Instrument Control Toolbox also provides connectivity through instrument drivers such as:
You can use these drivers directly from MATLAB to communicate with the instrument over the USB connection, provided that VISA software is installed.
