In the ExampleECGBitalino when I choose to use live data from my Bitalino board, the number of readings collected is very low for 20 seconds. The board is doing one reading every 1 second... and it should be doing one reading every 1/1000 seconds. How do I change de frequency of the readings?

@Matlab Downloadkennung: Instrument Control Toolbox is supported since at least MATLAB R2006a. Bluetooth support in Instrument Control Toolbox goes back more than 5 years ago!

What is b=Bitalino?, what is it refer to? When I running this coding in matlab, it always showing error b=Bitalino;

It seems this toolbox requires instrument control toolbox which is supported only on R2016a so far. FYI

@Carlos: You do not need this application to process .h5 files. Refer to the MATLAB documentation for hdf5read

@Vaisakh: I don't follow your question. Are you looking to use this in Simulink?

vaisakh j b

how to use this signal as an input other blocks?

Can I use this toolbox to communicate with Biosignals Plux Explorer kit or is intended to be used with BITalino only?

Best Regards


i want to display EMG data in real time w/ dsp like bitalino app after run b.startBackgroud
how i can save/get data in real - time when code b.startBackground is streaming data, so i can plot data in real - time?
i'm using streaming processing for analysis

dsp that i mean display data in timescope w/ code dsp.timescope

best regard,

How I can open in this application, a file .h5 to process data into Matlab?

@Irfan: Feel free to edit the Bitalino App's source code and see how it is done there. You can use the same approach in your project.

@Alyssa: Try this with MATLAB R2016a on the Mac. Bluetooth has been tested wit MATLAB R2016a on on Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan).


Is it possible to display in real time the acquired signals in matlab without Bitalino App?
i'm working on a project where i need to acquire signals in real time ,
best regards

Please contact me directly for Mac.


Does not work on MAC OS -

Getting error:

Is there a way around this?
