Publisher description for Load BIOPAC ACQ format data

Load BIOPAC ACQ format data program icon

"load_acq.m" will load BIOPAC's AcqKnowledge (ACQ) data to a structure containing ACQ header field and data matrix field. It is based on Application Note #156 from BIOPAC web site (see attachment), and this version can support up to version 3.9.0 of AcqKnowledge that was released on February 23, 2007. If "force_chan_by_chan_load" is set to 0, the program will read data depending on the data type in ACQ data. In that case, if the program detects that data type in ACQ file is different from channel to channel, it will have to read data "channel by channel"; otherwise, it will read the whole data in one block (6 times faster than using traditional way from channel to channel with the same result). However, by Default, the "force_chan_by_chan_load" option will be set to 1, which means that it only reads data channel by channel if there is no option flag. This is because that we want to Prevent out of memory problem when loading very large ACQ data file. If the program detects that the ACQ data contains different sample dividers, it will have to read data "sample by sample" (very slow). A script called "acq2mat.m" is provided to help you convert all .acq files to .mat files in all specified Folders in advance, since to load corresponding .mat files will be much quicker. i.e. In your MATLAB code, instead of using: acq = load_acq('MyGSR.acq'); you can Now use: acq = load('MyGSR.mat');
