The most advanced digital high-density electrophysiology acquisition and experiment control system for 16 to 512 channels, providing the lowest noise, DC coupled, wide-band recording solution with the largest signal input range.

The foundation of the Digital Lynx 16SX system, the Digital Lynx Combo Board performs both analog-to-digital signal conversion and software controlled analog reference selection for up to 512 channels - at lower cost per channel. One Combo Board replaces one DRS/Hybrid Input Board pair.

The Digital Lynx 16SX includes chassis, 16 board backplane, SX Motherboard, power supply and optical fiber Ethernet connection. The 16 board backplane supports up to 8 DRS/Hybrid Input Board pairs for 256 acquisition channels or up to 16 Digital Lynx Combo Boards for 512 acquisition channels.

Cheetah license is transferable between systems - saving you money on all system upgrades.

  • All new Digital Lynx SX systems now include Hardware Processing Platform (HPP) for real-time, closed-loop feedback experiments.

  • Supports 32 to 512 acquisition channels (with 16 Combo Boards installed)

  • Multiple gigabit Ethernet over fiber data connections

  • Automatic configuration for board population

  • Firmware version updates automatically load from PC

  • High Speed serial expansion for future external devices

  • Mezzanine Board expansion for sub-millisecond onboard processing capabilities - analog or digital I/O

Sold Separately:
