Stim Capable Headstage Combiner Unit (SHCU)

The Stimulation Capable Headstage Combiner Unit (HCU) combines neural data streams from multiple independent stim headstages into a single data stream which is sent to the Main Control Unit for further processing.

  • Designed for headfixed animals
  • Combines up to 8 headstage streams of 32-ch stim headstages (256 count capacity) into one data stream
  • Low latency: fast stimulation response time in under a millisecond
  • Multiple HCUs can be used in conjunction (daisy-chained) to combine more headage streams
  • 5V power supply
  • Mounting L-brackets
  • 19″ rack mount
  • HDMI cables: A-A and A-D
Max channel count1024 or 256 (using 128 or 32 channel headstages)
Connection to MCU (or to daisy-chained HCU)HDMI
Supported headstagesUH32 and HH128 (version without processor)
