BITalino Support from MATLAB

on 30-11-2015

... Born at IT, now present in more than 40 countries, and currently being used by thousands of students, researchers & hobbyist worldwide, BITalino reaches yet another major milestone with the release of an official toolbox for MATLAB. Created by the MathWorks Instrument Control Toolbox Team, the newly-launched toolbox means that from now on BITalino will have seamless native integration with one of the leading technical computing software platforms in the world. This is quite a remarkable achievement considering that, with only little over two years of existence, BITalino is still an emergent platform but already with a reputation worthy of having an industry leader like MathWorks writing official libraries to support it, thus conquering a spot alongside renowned names in the field of instrumentation such as National Instruments, Tektronix, and others that have also seen their devices officially supported on MATLAB.
