Is there any USB device for simulating......

Is it posiible to generate analog signal from a USB device. The data to be generated as analog signal is stored in usb or PC to which it is connected ?

thanks

An USB-DAQ?

See e.g.
http://www.ni.com/data-acquisition/usb/

Note that DAQs from NI are not what you would call cheap, there are plenty of less pricey alternatives out there.

yes for for analog, you are correct, I'm thinking of building a controller myself but i'll dig deeper into it later.

thanks all.
actually the idea came because of this.
So I thought I could pre-generate a fixed length data either in Scilab or Matlab, and
produce the analog signal accordingly.
I also saw ideas using PC/laptop sound card, but that needs conversion of data (csv, xls, txt etc) into mp3, wav format , which I feel is very tough.

any more suggestions appreciated.
