my name is Andreas Patzer and I'm the business development manager of CANape (Vector Informatik GmbH).
Thanks for the development of the import possibility of MDF-files into Matlab.
Please keep in mind that there is not ‘THE’ MDF file. In the early 90’ the MDF format was developed by Vector and Bosch and meanwhile there are some different MDF versions that are supported by CANape. Since years every development step was done in corporation with ETAS, to make sure that their and our customers have the same format.
One of the comments was like “ … not any more dependent of INCA MDA ..”. From my opinion ;-)) the very best tool to analyze MDF files is CANape or the analyzing subset of CANape, called CANgraph.
If you want to handle the MDF content in the Matlab workspace, please use the export possibilities in CANape. File | Converter options | Matlab Export Converter …
