This tool and function imports data from v3.0 MDF (.dat or .mdf) files to the MATLAB® workspace or MAT-file. Each signal comes in as a separate variable. Associated time vectors are also generated.
Calling 'mdfimport' without parameters brings up a interactive GUI. Calling 'mdfimport' with parameters reads the signals in directly.
Instructions: Unzip attached files and put on your path or in the current directory. Type mdfimport to run. Access help from the tools Help menu of the GUI for more information or by directly reading the two HTML files included.
Tested in releases from R13 to R2006A. Tested more with MDF files generated by ETAS INCA. Does work with some files VECTOR CANtech CANape.
