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

The foundation of the Digital Lynx 4SX system, the Digital Lynx Combo Board performs both analog-to-digital signal conversion and software controlled analog reference selection - at lower cost per channel. One Combo Board replaces one DRS/Hybrid Input Board pair.

The Digital Lynx 4SX includes chassis, 4 board backplane, SX Motherboard, power supply and optical fiber Ethernet connection. The 4 board backplane supports up to 2 DRS/Hybrid Input Board pairs for 64 acquisition channels or up to 4 Digital Lynx Combo Boards for 128 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 16 to 128 acquisition channels (with 4 Combo Boards installed)

  • 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
