Collection of Wave and Datafolder getter functions.

  • All functions with return types DF or Wave return an existing wave or datafolder.

  • Prefer functions which return a DFREF over functions which return strings. The latter ones are only useful if you need to know if the folder exists.

  • Modifying wave getter functions might require to introduce wave versioning, see Wave versioning support

Version History

Wave

  • 1: Initial version

  • 2: Renamed column Name to Tags

  • 3: Added chunks dimension indexing over channel types

Tags format

Initial version in a2172f03 (Added generations of epoch information wave, 2019-05-22), parsed in PA plot since 4e534e29 (Pulse Averaging: Pulse starting times are now read from the lab notebook, 2020-10-07).

In d150d896 (DC_AddEpochsFromStimSetNote: Add sub sub epoch information, 2021-02-02) tree level 3 info for pulse train pulses was added, which is read out since ba209bbd (PA plot: Gather more pulse infos, 2021-02-02).

And in 2371cfb0 (Epochs: Revise naming, 2021-09-22) we changed the naming of the tags and also adapted PA_RetrievePulseStartTimesFromEpochs.

For these three formats we have tests in RPI_WorksWithOldData(). When changing the tags format this test needs to be updated.

Columns:

  • channel number (0-based)

  • sampling interval in microseconds (1e-6)

  • decimation mode (always zero)

  • data offset

  • headstage number

  • clamp mode

The wave note holds a list of channel units. The order is the same as the rows. TTL channels don’t have units. Querying the channel unit should always be done via AFH_GetChannelUnit() or AFH_GetChannelUnits().

This wave is also used for NI devices as configuration template. There is one difference though: While for ITC devices there is one TTL row for each rack, for NI devices there is one TTL row for each channel (up to 8 currently) The channel number column holds the hardware channel number for the NI device

ITC hardware: The number of TTL bits which are stored in each TTL channel is hardware dependent and can be queried with HW_ITC_GetRackRange().

Version 1 changes:

  • Columns now have dimension labels

  • One more column with the channel data offset

  • Due to the wave versioning the channel unit is now stored with the CHANNEL_UNIT_KEY as key and it is now separated not with semicolon anymore but a comma.

Version 2 changes:

  • DAQChannelType column added

Version 3 changes:

  • Change wave to double precision

  • Headstage column added

  • ClampMode column added
