SmartProbe 2015 v2 StretchedBackground

The SmartProbe™ combines reusable modular on-package electronics with NeuroNexus neural microelectrode arrays, enabling high channel count recording in an ultra-compact form factor.

The SmartProbe™ utilizes state-of-the-art on-board electronics to digitize neural signals at the implant site, minimizing both the overall implant size as well as noise from connectors and movement.

Miniaturization is achieved through the reduction of the output connector lead count, allowing a large number of channels (up to 256) to be multiplexed through a mini HDMI cable. The compact connector also reduces connection force, so daily connections take place more reliably.

The SmartProbe™ requires a control and acquisition system such as the SmartBox™ or any Intan-compatible system. Alternatively, NeuroNexus Standard Probes (or other electrodes) can be connected to the SmartBox™ with SmartLink headstages.

Array Designs

The SmartProbe™ can be configured from any Standard NeuroNexus electrode array.

NOTE: While every effort is is made to produce perfectly functioning probes, the SmartProbe™ is a very high channel count device and may have up to 10% allowable irregular sites.
