Toolbox and Adaptor

Hardware Driver Adaptor

The hardware driver adaptor is the interface between the data acquisition engine and the hardware driver. The adaptor’s main purpose is to pass information between MATLAB® and your hardware device via its driver.

Hardware drivers are provided by the device vendor. For example, to acquire data using a National Instruments® board, the appropriate version of the driver must be installed on your system. Hardware drivers are not installed as part of the toolbox, but a suitable driver is usually installed on PCs that are equipped with a sound card. For any other devices, the drivers must be installed.
