export data from NI 9234 into txt file using ASNI C

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

I just started learning how to control the NI9234 to acquire sound/vibration data.

 

Based on NI's sample ANSI code, I could control the NI 9234 to read the analog input from the channel connected with PCB microphone. However, if I saved it into a txt file and plotted the txt data in Matlab, the figure looked like random noises other than sound signal (human voices). Code with which I am using, and figure of acquired txt data are shown as below.

 

May anyone tell me if the code is correct? If yes, what happened to the txt data?

 

Many thanks in advance for your time and help. Waiting for the reply.

 

Environment: Visual studio express 2008, win 7 (64 bits)

Re: export data from NI 9234 into txt file using ASNI C

Problem solved.

 

It's my own stupid mistake during the saving session. It should be

sprintf(&line[0],"%f\n",data[i]); 

 instead of

sprintf(&line[0],"%d\n",data[i]); 

 

cheers
