NI myDAQ Support from MATLAB

Low cost data acquisition platform for measuring and analyzing signals.

MATLAB supports National Instruments myDAQ (NI myDAQ) hardware, a low-cost, portable USB DAQ device. NI myDAQ hardware is used for project-based learning and hands-on experimentation for analog circuits, sensors, signals, and systems.

Support for NI myDAQ hardware is provided through the Data Acquisition Toolbox Support Package for National Instruments NI-DAQmx Devices. This support allows you to perform the following tasks in MATLAB:

  • Read data from analog input channels (oscilloscope)
  • Write data to analog output channels (function generator)
  • Read and write data to the eight digital input and output channels
  • Setup and configure the NI myDAQ Counter/Timer
  • Configure the sampling rate of the NI myDAQ device
