The Neuropixels control system allows user-friendly and reliable operation of the Neuropixels 1.0 probes. All parts have been optimized to achieve seamless end-to-end interoperability and data integrity.
The control system consists of three parts: a headstage, an interface cable and a PXIe acquisition module. Dedicated application software is also available.
This miniature and light-weight interface board is essential for power supply to the probe, probe configuration, bi-directional data communication and system diagnostics and debugging.
The flexible 5 m long and 410 x 820 µm thin interface cable establishes a power and data link between the headstage and PXIe acquisition board and weighs only 5 g.
PXIe Acquisition Module
This custom PXIe acquisition module can acquire data from up to 4 probes simultaneously. It enables probe configuration, data acquisition and data transmission to a PC. An API allows development of custom application software.
NOTE: Additional third-party PXIe hardware must be installed to use this module. Please read the Neuropixels User Manual for more info.
