I need a data acquisition device (DAQ) capable of sending Matlab programmed analog outputs over the [-5,5] V range. I am considering the NI USB-6001 as a cost-effective solution.
Matlab summarises the NI DAQ hardware support here ( and notes "The NI USB 6001 device is unable to generate foreground analog output".
Is the the NI USB 6001 device able to generate background analog output using Matlab?
I am using Matlab 2018b as this supports Matlab's Data Acquisition Toolbox with NI USB-6001.
