BDF file format to excel?

Post by atluris » Mon May 14, 2012 8:32 pm


I'm currently trying to analyze some pilot physiological data with respect to flight simulation data. I'd like to compare them both together and the flight simulation data is currently in excel. Is there a way to convert the bdf file into an excel file so I can see all the points for the different channels of signals in BioSemi?

Thanks for your time.

It should be quite straight forward to make such a BDF --> Excel converter yourself on the basis of our BDF-EDF converter written in open source LabVIEW, see . LabVIEW can write to Excel format, see and and ... td-p/20616 . Just change the EDF write section of the converter to code that writes the data to Excel.

Please post your resulting LabVIEW VI on this forum, it might be useful to other BioSemi users

You can use the EDF/BDF -> ASCII converter in EDFbrowser.
The resulting CSV file can be opened in excel.
