DADiSP / SIF 1.0

SFI 1.0

SoMat Information File Import Module

The SoMat Information File or SIF format stores multiple channels of data generated by the SoMat 2500, eDAQ and other SoMat data acquisition systems. The format was designed to efficiently store data records from multiple SoMat data modes.

SIF Import

DADiSP/SIF directly imports SIF data files and automatically applies all data scaling and sets sample rate and engineering unit information for each channel. Multiple data runs are saved in separate DADiSP datasets. The imported channels can be loaded into separate Windows or combined into a single Window for display.

SIF Format

Both frame multiplexed and full de-multiplexed record formats are supported for all time history and rainflow data channels. The following data modes are currently imported:

  • De-Multiplexed RAM THISTORY, SIF keyword 1 and 7
  • De-Multiplexed RAM RAINFLOW, SIF keyword 4
  • De-Multiplexed RAM TAL, SIF keyword 6
  • Frame Multiplexed RAM THISTORY_RMFDA, SIF keyword 201.

Simple Menu Interface

DADiSP/SIF runs from the DADiSP worksheet and is accessed by a press of a button. The SIF user interface displays important file information and automatically formats SIF channel names into appropriate DADiSP series names.

Full Analysis System

DADiSP provides a complete analysis, display, and processing environment using SIF data. The integration of DADiSP/SIF into DADiSP makes it easy to automate data import and analysis applications completely through SPL (Series Processing Language), macros, and command files.


DADiSP/SIF requires DADiSP 6.5 B01 or higher. Contact us for information about updating your current version of DADiSP.

DADiSP/SIF 1.0 Functions

DADiSP/SIF is a fully dialog based module. However, the following functions can be used on a standalone basis to read SIF files.

SIF Functions

sifimport Import a SIF file into one or more datasets
sifinfo Return information about a SIF file

The Next Steps

What do our Customers say about us?

At 13-years old, my daughter’s research manuscript has been accepted for publication in a top tier peer-reviewed Environmental Science journal and OriginPro 8.6 will allow her to export the graphs in a wide variety of formats which can meet any publisher’s requirements. Kudos to OriginLab for designing innovative and intuitive software that can span the needs of both a burgeoning young scientist like my daughter to a PhD expert in their field. It is hard to imagine that other products offer this extraordinary level of user versatility.

Excellent, very approachable and with wide knowledge of the software

I have greatly appreciated your help, your restraint in response to some daft questions and your sheer professionalism.

“Looking online for a software that would perform the particular task we need at the moment (resolution of overlapped Gaussian-shaped peaks), I was glad to find out that a fully functional trial version of OriginPro was made available by your company. Also, watching one of the tutorial videos, all commands and short-cuts I needed to get my results were shown there. Very handy and a time-saver.”
