Accessing NI PCI-6503 via MATLAB on Ubuntu

I will really appreciate it if someone can tell me the steps to access NI PCI cards via MATLAB on Ubuntu, starting with the packages I will need to install.  My requirements are very basic - like writing a 16-bit digital word.

 

Thanks,

Zhivago...

Re: Accessing NI PCI-6503 via MATLAB on Ubuntu

Unfortunately the DAQmx drivers you would need for the PCI-6503 aren't compatible with Ubuntu.

 

It seems that there would be two options:

  1. Switch to a supported distribution such as CentOS
  2. Try out the open source comedi drivers which happen to support the 6503

 

Depending on which route you take, googling "matlab daqmx" or "matlab comedi" should provide some insight about how to interact with the drivers from MATLAB.
