ADC and USB Data sending to MatLab

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I found out from my previous post that the output value from the ADC can be accessed through pui32ADC0Value...now, im trying to send that data via USB device mode in Tiva, however, my concerns are will my code work? And if it works, how do I access that data via MatLab. Thanks


Once again, credits to the maker of the ADC code.

why you don't use CDC communicate with PC,them you could get return data from rs232 protocol. 


They probably meant using USB CDC (Communications Device Class), which creates a virtual serial port running across the USB connection.

You can use the debug port on the launchpad (which provides a virtual serial port connected to UART0 on the launchpad processor).

Or you could use the launchpad processors USB port and build your own USB CDC driver.

In either case it would look like a serial port from the point of view of your host operating system.
