  • A device can be specified either by a DeviceObject or by a string representing a device class.
  • Only devices from which data is continuously collected support DeviceReadLatest.
  • DeviceReadLatest is a non-blocking function. It uses data already collected from a device, and does not request additional data.
  • DeviceReadLatest[device,n] may return a list shorter than n elements if not enough pre-collected data is available.
  • DeviceReadLatest[device,n] returns data with the oldest first in the list.
