You can generate arbitrary waveforms for your test system directly from MATLAB using Instrument Control Toolbox. You can also build graphical interfaces to verify device performance, compare real-world data to models created in MATLAB or Simulink, and automate tests.
By using the SCPI commands described in the operating or programming manual for your arbitrary waveform generator, you can control and generate data to be output by any arbitrary waveform generator over any of these supported interfaces:
Many manufacturers of arbitrary waveform generators supply industry-standard instrument drivers that you can use directly from MATLAB. Instrument Control Toolbox provides connectivity through instrument drivers such as:
