Using other software with BIOPAC hardware

The BIOPAC Hardware Application Program Interface (BHAPI) can be used if the hardware in question is an MP160, MP150, MP36R, MP36, or MP45. The BHAPI is a set of dynamically linked libraries (dll files) that can be used on Windows computers. Programs capable of loading these dlls will have the ability to set up data acquisition parameters and to acquire data. Programmers can design their own user interface and data processing algorithms.

An alternative for research systems running AcqKnowledge is the Network Data Transfer licensed feature option. With this option, AcqKnowledge can be configured as usual and other applications can intercept its channel information during data acquisition (including information produced by calculation channels within AcqKnowledge).
