I want to build up a regulation with a DAQ NI USB-6001. My matlab-version is R2015.
For this I have to use simulink. After reading about communication between simulink and the DAQ, I am pretty sure, I have to use the Data Acquisition Toolbox at the simulink library. But it doesn't appear there.
Is the NI USB-6001 supported by simulink, or do I have to use matlab-code in simulink for this?

OK, the problem is the version of matlab:
Simulink uses the legacy interface to connect the DAQ-card.
So you can only use the Data Acquisition Toolbox in simulink if you use a 32 bit version of matlab!
