Hardware Support

NI-FGEN Support from Instrument Control Toolbox

Control NI-FGEN devices and create your own arbitrary waveforms using MATLAB

NI™ manufactures arbitrary waveform and function generators that use the NI-FGEN driver. You can use MATLAB together with Instrument Control Toolbox as your single software environment to configure, control, and create waveforms with these instruments.

With MATLAB, you can analyze and visualize data for signal processing, statistical analysis, digital filtering, and curve fitting. You can also create graphical interfaces for collecting and analyzing your data and automating tests.

Consult the table for the list of NI-FGEN devices supported by the latest release of Instrument Control Toolbox.

Platform and Release Support

For releases R2022b and later, install the NI-FGEN Driver and the IVI® and VXIplug&play support package to add support for these devices.

For releases R2022a and earlier, you must install the NI-FGEN hardware support package to use these instruments. See the hardware support package system requirements table for current and prior version, release, and platform availability of the NI-FGEN hardware support package.
