Analog Loopback Test on Q8-USB DAQ - Tutorial

By default, the loopback demo is set for Q8 data acquisition boards. If you are using the Q8-USB DAQ device, the loopback demo needs to be re-set. Follow the steps below:

1 Type "qc_show_demos" in the MATLAB command window and .
2 Select the "QUARC Analog Loopback Demo
3 Click on “Open this model”:
