Hi,
I am quite new in MAtlab and I would like to have some help,
I have a sine with amplitude and time and I want to save the amplitude data into a raw file. How can I get it? I have tried with the code above.
I am not sure if it is correct. So I would like to know if it is correct or in other way, how can I do it in a correct way. Thank you in advance.
fid=fopen('Profilevoltage.raw','w');
fwrite(fid,amplitude,'uint16');
fclose(fid);

Hi Bob,
First of all, thank you for answering.
Is an image file type where I have to use it to upload this data into a machine which only reads data in ".raw" file type. And yes it is a binary file, that is saved like an image.
I don´t know if I have explained myself correctly.

Your code,
fid=fopen('Profilevoltage.raw','w');
fwrite(fid,amplitude,'uint16');
fclose(fid);
I recommend that you try those codes.
Use a matrix transpose
fid=fopen('Profilevoltage.raw','w+');
fwrite(fid,amplitude','uint16');
fclose(fid);

If the data is being saved in a binary format, then you can just label the file as '.raw' rather than '.txt'. You do need to make sure you are saving it in a binary compatible file format first though.
