Here is my problem. I am trying to generate a sinusoidal voltage waveform of 5 V p-p from my usb port using matlab. I know usb port normally supplies 5 v dc to a device but can i change it to a ac wave using matlab ?? If there is a way, let me know plz. I want this ac voltage to be input to a sound speaker to produce sound. Thanks

You can use an Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beagle Board, Measurement Computing digital I/O device, or something similar. Maybe start by searching for "tag:arduino"

No. You cannot use a USB port to generate an AC voltage.
