HS-64-MUX digitizes analog neural signals on the headstage to reduce wire count, weight, size and system cost – ideal for secondary systems or start up labs.

Combine analog & MUX headstages in Digital Lynx SX. Digital Lynx SX-M Upgrade supports MUX headstages.

2 differential stimulation channels. LEDs for behavioral tracking. Latch option for added retention. 

FLED-HS-64-MUX:  identical to standard HS-64-MUX with the addition of external wires for the FLED drive current signals.

Video Tracking LEDs:

  • HS-LED-Blue-3.3V
  • HS-LED-Red-3.3V
  • HS-LED-Green-3.3V
  • HS-LED-IR-3.3V (infrared)

Tether Extension Cable (TETH-XTN-MUX) is required for use with Saturn Commutators, connecting the Saturn to the Digital Lynx SX-M.

Tether Extension Cable connects HS-32-MUX / HS-64-MUX headstages to Digital Lynx SX-M.

​Only on-head digitizing solution with two dedicated differential stimulation channels in one thin tether for 64 channels.

Integrates directly into Digital Lynx SX-M.  

Five channel configurations (16 to 128) available.

  • Combine analog and MUX headstages in Digital Lynx SX
  • LEDs for behavioral tracking
  • Latch option for added retention 
  • Lowest price point to use Cheetah software

Standard Digital Lynx 4SX & 16SX upgrade supports MUX headstages.  Contact sales@neuralynx.com for details.

User-friendly HS-64-MUX cable:

  • 50% smaller in diameter, yet more rugged design
  • Twist / move each half independently
  • No longer constrained by flex tether
  • Each 32 channel half of HS-64-MUX has a dedicated data connection back to Digital Lynx SX, even though combined into a single cable at the splitter
