GitHub all releases PYPI Nuget

BrainFlow is a library intended to obtain, parse and analyze EEG, EMG, ECG, and other kinds of data from biosensors.

It provides a uniform SDK to work with biosensors with a primary focus on neurointerfaces, all features available for free and distributed under MIT license.

Advantages of BrainFlow:

  • powerful API with many features to simplify development
    • Straightforward API for data acquisition
    • Powerful API for signal filtering, denoising, downsampling...
    • Development tools like Synthetic board, Streaming board, logging API
  • easy to use
    • BrainFlow has many bindings, you can choose programming language you like
    • All programming languages provide the same API, so it's simple to switch
    • API is uniform for all boards, it makes applications on top of BrainFlow almost board agnostic
  • easy to support and extend
    • Code to read data and to perform signal processing is implemented only once in C/C++, bindings just call C/C++ methods
    • Powerful CI/CD system which runs integrations tests for each commit automatically using BrainFlow's Emulator
    • Simplified process to add new boards and methods
