Interface / Standard
VXI Devices and MATLAB
MATLAB supports communication with VXI modules through Instrument Control Toolbox. You can use MATLAB software to control instruments, make measurements, analyze data, and build test systems. Once data is in MATLAB, you can analyze and visualize that data for tasks such as signal processing, statistical analysis, digital filtering, and curve fitting.
VXI (VME eXtensions for Instrumentation) is a bus standard used for automated test. MATLAB supports VXI modules from multiple vendors through the VISA interface or the use of instrument drivers.
Working with VXI instruments Using Text-Based Commands
Instrument Control Toolbox supports communication with VXI modules directly from MATLAB. You can control and acquire data from any message-based VXI module by sending text messages or SCPI commands over the VISA-VXI interface. You can also control register-based VXI modules through the VISA-VXI interface.
Working with VXI instruments Using Instrument Drivers
Instrument Control Toolbox also supports the use of industry standard instrument drivers such as:
VXI modules are often delivered with these drivers, and you can use them directly from MATLAB to control and acquire data from the VXI module.
