Digilent Analog Discovery Devices

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.

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

  • Read data from oscilloscope channels.

  • Control and generate data from waveform generators.

  • Characterize ICs and measure behavior of the circuit and IC components.

  • Configure the sampling rate of the Analog Discovery device.

  • Trigger the start of your data acquisition.

  • Find and display Digilent Analog Discovery device settings.

Use the Add-on Explorer to download required drivers. For more information see Install Hardware Support Package for Vendor Support.
