NI-DAQmx Support from Data Acquisition Toolbox

Acquire and analyze data from National Instruments NI-DAQmx devices.

MATLAB® supports CompactDAQ, X-Series, M-Series, E-Series, USB, myDAQ, ELVIS II, and many other types of data acquisition hardware from National Instruments® through Data Acquisition Toolbox™. Specifically, the toolbox supports National Instruments data acquisition hardware that uses the following driver software: NI-DAQmx (version 9.2 or higher) and Traditional NI-DAQ (version 7.3).

The toolbox provides two types of interfaces for communicating with hardware: legacy and session-based. Depending on your application and hardware, you use either the legacy or session-based interface to communicate with the hardware. The session-based interface directly supports voltage, current, thermocouple, RTD, IEPE, and bridge measurements, and it provides access to the following subsystems of your NI device:

  • Analog input
  • Analog output
  • Digital I/O channels
  • Counter/timer

The legacy interface supports voltage measurements and provides access to analog input, analog output, and digital I/O subsystems of your NI-DAQmx device. The legacy interface also provides Simulink® blocks. For digital I/O, the toolbox supports both clocked digital I/O (session-based interface) and static acquisition and control (legacy interface).

Both interfaces allow you to configure the sampling rate for your DAQ hardware, trigger the start of your data acquisition, and find and display device settings.
