This example program can be used to verify that you have installed all the necessary software components to use MATLAB and MATLAB’s Data Acquisition Toolbox with the U2300A Series data acquisition devices. Use this example as instructed in the installation guide called “Getting Started – MATLAB with Agilent DAQ Devices” that is also provided on this webpage. Please save this example file to disk and execute the file in MATLAB.
This example requires the instrument’s respective IVI-COM instrument driver to be installed in order to operate. This driver can be downloaded for free at:
This example also requires VISA software to be installed in order to connect to the instrument using IVI-COM drivers. The software is included in the Agilent IO Libraries and is available for download at:
