     16== BarrettHand PC Requirements ==
     17The BH8-SERIES control software was written for computers running Windows XP or Ubuntu 9.10.  The !BarrettHand Control GUI requires a good amount of CPU power and memory for running this wxWidgets based application.  Barrett Technology requires the minimum specs for using the corresponding operating system.  A processor with a CPU clock speed of 1 GHz or greater, 1 GB of RAM, at least a Gigabyte of free disk space, and a modern graphics card is recommended.  Communications requires either one available USB port for the Peak USB to CAN adapter for the BH8-280 hand or a 9-pin serial port for BH8-262 hand.
