Keithley USB Data Acquisition Devices

Keithley offers a series of USB data acquisition devices called the KUSB Series. MATLAB and Simulink support this Keithley data acquisition hardware using the Data Acquisition Toolbox and an adaptor available directly from Keithley. View the Keithley MATLAB User's Guide for information on downloading, installing, and using this adaptor.

Note: You must use the 32-bit version of Data Acquisition Toolbox and MATLAB to use Keithley KUSB data acquisition devices. The 32-bit versions of Data Acquisition Toolbox and MATLAB can be installed on a 64-bit Windows OS.

Keithley ISA, PCI, and, PCMCIA Data Acquisition Devices

MATLAB and Simulink can support certain ISA, PCI and PCMCIA data acquisition devices from Keithley Instruments that use the Keithley DriverLINX hardware driver through the Data Acquisition Toolbox and an adaptor available on MATLAB Central. Please visit MATLAB Central for a list of devices that can be supported with this adaptor. We recommend that you also visit the Keithley Instruments Web site to download the latest Keithley DriverLINX updates for your particular device. The latest drivers often include bug fixes and resolve compatibility issues. (See the DriverLINX release notes on the Keithley Instruments Web site for details.)

Note: You must use the 32-bit version of Data Acquisition Toolbox and MATLAB to use Keithley DriverLINX hardware. The 32-bit versions of Data Acquisition Toolbox and MATLAB can be installed on a 64-bit Windows OS.

Keithley Instruments using Instrument Standard Protocols

Many Keithley products today use instrument standard protocols and can be used with Instrument Control Toolbox. Instrument Control Toolbox enables you to communicate directly with the instrument using one or more instrument communication protocols including GPIB, VISA, TCP/IP, UDP, and serial. Alternatively, you can communicate with the instrument if the instrument supports an instrument standard such as IVI , LXI, or VXIplug&play.
