Manuel Bernardo Cunha, João Paulo Silva Cunha and Tomás Oliveira e Silva, "SIGIF: A Digital Signal Interchange Format with Application in Neurophysiology," IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, vol. 44, no. 5, pp. 413-418, May 1997.


In this paper, the authors describe a biomedical digital-signal interchange format. The format supports both raw and processed data, multiple segments, several signal structures and representations, and an open architecture. Its versatility and adaptability allows the software to take advantage of any particular features of the acquisition hardware. The format has been used and improved in routine work during a five-year period involving the cooperation between two hospitals and one engineering research center. In order to support the format, an object oriented C language library has been developed and is also shortly described.
