Hi Najib,

The MWorks nightly build now includes the NIDAQ plugin I've been working on. To use it, you'll need to install NI-DAQmx Base 3.6.

At this point, the plugin is alpha quality (at best). It should be sufficient for proof-of-concept purposes, but I wouldn't try collecting any real data with it. Currently, only analog input is supported, but analog output and digital I/O will be coming soon.

I've attached a simple example experiment that reads from two analog channels. I haven't created editor templates for the NIDAQ device and channels yet, but adapting the example to your setup should be straightforward.

I'd appreciate it if you could give the plugin a try and let me know how it goes. I'm sure there are a ton of issues to shake out, but hopefully you can at least confirm that you're getting data from your device in to MWorks. If you have questions or need help, please don't hesitate to ask!
