Analog Output Generator

Define and generate analog output signals


The Analog Output Generator provides a graphical interface to data acquisition devices.

Using this app, you can:

  • Configure device channels and properties.

  • Define waveforms in a workspace variable as a vector of double values, or as a timetable.

  • Preview defined signals on several analog output channels for a selected device.

  • Generate analog or audio output signals for a finite period (foreground) or continuously (background).

  • Create scripts in the Live Editor from the app session.

Open the Analog Output Generator App

  • MATLAB® Toolstrip: On the Apps tab, under Test and Measurement, click the app.

  • MATLAB command prompt: Enter analogOutputGenerator.


Opening the Analog Output Generator deletes all your existing data acquisition sessions in MATLAB.

The session created by the Analog Output Generator is not accessible from the MATLAB command line.
