Hi, all. First time posting here, so please pardon any lack of default
knowledge. My company handles US/Canada sales and support for the Biosemi
ActiveTwo EEG system, and I know a lot of our customers use Fieldtrip.
Until now I have never had a pre-sales question from a customer about
Fieldtrip. I was unable to find an answer in your archives, so I am posting
it here.

In mid-2015, Biosemi released firmware 4.0 for the optical receiver / USB
interface. This eliminates the need to install a driver, instead utilizing
a driver that ships with Windows 10. Most older ActiveTwo systems can be
field-upgraded by end-users according to instructions at

Thie page at your site -
http://www.fieldtriptoolbox.org/development/realtime/biosemi/ - does not
mention which optical receiver / USB interface firmware versions are
compatible, which leaves open the question of whether firmware 4.0 is
supported. Firmware 3.0 shipped from sometime before Spring 2011 until
Spring of 2015, but all systems shipped from about June 2015 forward have
firmware 4.0, and many older systems have been field-upgraded.

Thanks in advance for any insight!

Best regards,
