Hardware Support

Digilent Analog Discovery Support from MATLAB

Low-cost hardware development platform for analog circuit design using Data Acquisition Toolbox

Capabilities and Features

MATLAB supports the Digilent Analog Discovery™ design kit, a low-cost, portable USB DAQ device. The kit enables project-based learning for analog circuit design. For professors and course instructors, the kit comes with downloadable teaching materials, reference designs, and lab projects.

Data Acquisition Toolbox Support Package for Digilent Analog Discovery hardware lets you perform the following tasks in MATLAB:

  • Read data from the two oscilloscope channels (analog input)
  • Control and generate data from the two waveform generators (analog output)
  • Configure the sampling rate of the Analog Discovery device
  • Find and display Digilent Analog Discovery device settings

Note: The support package does not support the use of Simulink Data Acquisition blocks for Digilent Analog Discovery hardware.
