I have not tried this, but i am willing to bet you can get FIX running on a modern PC with DOSbox, which is a cross-platform MS-DOS emulator. It’s most famous for letting you play very old video games in your web browser (http://playdosgamesonline.com/), but there’s no reason it shouldn’t work just as well for Real Work.
I have been on a similar search and found an R package by David van Leeuwen that is available at github. Please let me know if you find any other alternatives?
FIX is really awesome, but every time I want to use it I have to go over to Grannies and boot the Win 95 machine, and she makes me eat poppyseed cake which makes me tummy sore. . .

Subject: sinfa using matlab
I am writing in search of MATLAB-based software that performs sequential information transfer (SINFA; Wang and Bilger, 1973). I am impressed with the quality of the DOS-based software maintained by UCL called “FIX;” however, it would be more convenient to do the analysis in MATLAB if possible.
I appreciate any help you can offer, whether it be guiding me to publically-available software, or sharing software that you’ve developed.
