New Software Version 10.55 (3/22/01)

Files for Download

This is an exciting new addition to our web page. We now have the ability to make available software updates, setup files, and other helpful software. That's the good news. The bad news is that you will need to learn to download the files and install them in your F1000 System. We have attempted to make the process as easy as possible, but keep in mind this is a Windows process which can be confusing at times.

The documentation is in Adobe Acrobat format which most browsers can display and print. Acrobat files end in .pdf. 

To view the documentation, simply click on the file with a .pdf extension. Some of the graphics may be hard to view on the screen, but the printed copy will be high quality.

The software is in a self extracting ZIP format. The files are intended to be extracted to a 3.5" floppy disk in the A:\ drive. Follow the instructions for each download. Call or e-mail if you have problems.

NOTES:
1. Each update file must be extracted to and installed from a separate floppy disk.
2. Do not copy the download file to the floppy. There is not enough space on a floppy for the downloaded file and the extracted files.

Exporting F1000 Data

F1000 data can be exported in comma delimited ASCII format suitable for import into spreadsheets and statistical software.   The Data Presentation module has built in export capability and all that is needed is to download the export.pdf file below for instructions.

Raw EEG data is saved in a separate file and require use of the RawAscii conversion package below. The rawascii.pdf file supplies instructions for installation and use. This package requires Windows 95 or above.

Use of these options require advanced knowledge of the ASCII data format and use of advanced statistical and/or spreadsheet packages. If you do not understand their use you should probably not be using this option. This will not limit your use of the F1000 in any way.
