The Instrument Control Toolbox lets you communicate with
instruments, such as oscilloscopes, function generators, and
analytical instruments, directly from MATLAB. The toolbox enables
you to communicate with instruments via instrument drivers, such as
IVI and VXIplug&play, and commonly used communication protocols, such as GPIB, VISA,
TCP/IP, and UDP. With the Instrument Control Toolbox product, you
can generate data in MATLAB to send out to an instrument, or read
data into MATLAB for analysis and visualization.
