Neuralynx was formed in 1993 when Casey Stengel was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research grant
for data acquisition system development, and developed the 8-channel Lynx amplifier. Neuralynx engineering
advances along with a NASA/NIH grant project created the Cheetah 160-channel Data Acquisition System.
was the heart of the University of Arizona E100 experiment for the NASA NeuraLab Space Shuttle Mission
which flew on Space Shuttle Columbia in April, 1998. The rigorous space flight requirements dictated the design of a new,
high performance, low power, compact system with extreme reliability. The Cheetah was designed to withstand the intense
Space Shuttle launch vibrations and to perform in space, which it did flawlessly - a benefit for all earthbound laboratory research environments!
