BrainScope und HeartScope have the same configuration:
High performance multiprocessor systems are used for the required computer power. In the beginning, in 1988: 9 Z80, installed in two CAMAC crates, designed by the scientific device manufacturer of the Academy of Sciences in Rossendorf. Later are used Transputer systems, ideal designed for connected processor structures and flexible connections of processor notes. Now are used high performance PC-processors and / or Digital Signal Processors with special features for highest processor performance and connectivity (GRID).
On this multiprocessor systems
are connected special functional structures for optimal use.
The performance of the multiprocessor system is designed in this way,
that the signal processing and recognition is realized in real time. On the
first level is realized the analysis of the single channels on the patented
procedure of Virtual Sources (in German: Virtuelle Quellen – VQ) in the time
domain. This method is a simulation of the human visual recognition system (as
Human Like Perception System) and realizes the peak measurement. On the second
level is realized the analysis across the channels using powerful image
amplifier system is developed for the highest precision amplification of
signals and is battery driven. It is in electrical isolation connected on the
this way we have a high security for the patients and an high signal quality
On this way we have a high security for the patients and an high signal quality
evaluation-PC is the control-station of the physician. A graphical user
interface realized the easy controlling of the system, the visual evaluation of
the signals and VQ and the start of specific tasks as mapping, FFT or the
selection and the start of defined psychological tests.
patient-PC is a multimedia-PC and is used for the stimulation. The
selected psychological tests include acoustic or visual stimuli up to
video-clips, controlled by data base tables. This tables are easy adapted to new
tests including new stimulus material or other time courses.
The real-time-PC is the data base server of the system.
Video-systems are integrated and connected to the system.
