  • “We have been using CED equipment for at least 20 years in order to collect EMG and EEG data during our studies of human motor control in health and disease. We use the Signal and Spike software extensively to control experiments and analyse data and have seen the programs evolve and become ever more impressive over the years. CED have been remarkably receptive to our suggestions for additions to the software, such as interface panels for external equipment such as TMS devices and multichannel amplifiers. They have also regularly provided pretty well immediate help with any in house software programming. Its hard to fault the level of service that we have received so consistently.”

  • “I've used Signal software from CED now for many years. It does what I want, and when I get stuck CED staff are quick to help and provide solutions”

  • “I would say that 1401 is the most versatile interface on the market and while there are several others, this one comes with the best software package for those who do not want to spend months fiddling with the software. It is true that there are relatively cheap ADC/DAC boards for DIY enthusiasts but to make good use of them you need an engineer to work in your team. And then the analysis is also "up to you". While Spike almost does it all for you and if you are up to it, you can programme almost anything. It is also a European product, which is yet another reason to buy it.”

  • “I used various CED programs, especially Spike2 in more recent years, and the data acquisition units the 1401 and later the micro 1401. These units are very versatile, and I know I hardly used a fraction of what they are capable of.
     
    The company has always been enormously supportive and helpful. I always knew that if I phoned them, someone would help me find the answer, or even on occasion, write bits of script for us to help us move forward. They run regular training courses, of course, and keep in touch with CED users by making visits to their labs, always trying to find out what more might be needed, both to help and presumably to guide the development of their hardware and software.
     
    Even having been retired for six years, I am still using the last version of spike 2 that I have access to, and I am certain that if I needed it, help would be at then end of the phone.”

  • “We at the Physiological Laboratory, Cambridge, have had a prolonged relationship with Cambridge Electronic Design (CED), to my knowledge dating before 1976, with therefore experience in its succession of products including the original 502 in addition to the series of 1401 systems.
     
    We have greatly benefited from a cordial, straightforward relationship based on firm trust, not only in the quality of CED software and hardware, but also the continued relationship and assistance in bespoke problems. CED products and the company relationships they bring about are therefore ideal for both the beginning and experienced scientists at their respective levels of electrophysiological work.”

  • "I have been a customer of the CED for almost 30 years and during this time I have always been happy with their hardware, software and the customer service"

  • “I have used 1401s and Spike2 for many, many years in my neuroscience research and have been delighted with both, and with the excellent support provided by CED.

  • "We have used CED hardware together with spike and signal software for over a decade in our labs at the Burke Medical Research Institute, New York, as well as several labs abroad. The acquisition and analysis capabilities are excellent, for our human EMG, non-invasive stimulation, and robotics studies. The customer service provided by CED has been exceptional."

Privacy policy

CED, through this site, does two things that relate to privacy. We would like to explain them.

Emails from down-loads

We offer free down-loads of many files on our site, from test programs to complete install files for updated versions of major packages like Spike2 and Signal.

When customers wish to take a down-load of a major package, we ask a few questions, including their name, email address, the serial number of the software for which they seek an upgrade and whether they would like an automatic email whenever we update the product. This information is emailed back to CED when they access the final down-load screen. Within this email, your browser transmits the type and version of browser you are using, and the screen resolution you are running.

The reasons why we take and keep this information are that it is useful for our software development team to know who has taken the latest versions, and it is useful for our web site development team to know which browsers people are using to view our site, and what resolution they have their screens set to.

Cookies

When people down-load a major package, we try to write a cookie, a small file in your computer, that records your name, serial number of the software package, and the version you are down-loading. These files have a lifetime of one year.

The reasons for storing this information are firstly that if you ask for another down-load some other time, your details are read from the cookie and are pre-written into the form, to save you looking them up again. The other reason is that next time you access our site, your browser looks through your CED cookies and compares the versions down-loaded with the latest version numbers read from our site. If there is a later version of a product you have already down-loaded, we tell you on the home page screen, so you know that it is worth going to the down-load page again.

None of this information is ever given to anyone outside CED. ×
