CED Micro 3



LOW COST. VERSATILE. EXPANDABLE.

Record waveform data, digital event and marker information and can simultaneously generate
real-time waveform and digital outputs for multi-tasking experimental control.

A-M Systems Model Model

The Micro 1401-3 is a low-cost, versatile data acquisition unit compatible with both Spike2 and Signal software suites. The on-board processor with high-speed memory is optimized for real-time processing, free from the constraints of the host computer operating system. Fast and accurate sampling coupled with simultaneous output offers extensive on-line experimental control.

Fast Data Acquisition And Analysis

The Micro3 records waveform data and digital event and marker information, and can simultaneously generate waveform and digital outputs in real-time for multitasking experimental control. It features high-speed waveform capture at rates up to 500 kHz with 16-bit resolution. The 32-bit RISC processor allows complex on-line analysis while freeing time for the host computer to perform other tasks, such as data manipulation and further analysis.

Waveform Input Channels

There are 4 waveform input channels on an unexpanded Micro1401-3 and one Trigger. The normal working input range of these channels is ±5 Volts or ±10 Volts, software selectable. Additional input channels may be added with the accessory expansion units

Waveform Output Channels

There are 2 waveform output channels on the Micro1401-3 available through BNC connectors on the front panel, labelled DAC Outputs (Digital to Analogue Converters). The DAC waveform outputs produce voltages in the range ±5 Volts, in steps of approximately 150 µV, or 300 µV on the ±10V range.

Expandable for Advanced Applications

ADC12: Sets of 12 More Waveform Inputs

CED ADC12 Expansion Box for CED Micro 1401-3

Add additional waveform input channels by combining 3001-3 top boxes with The Micro 1401. The electrical and timing characteristics of these inputs are the same as those of the base four.

ADC64: 64 More Waveform Inputs

CED ADC64 Expansion Box for CED Micro 1401-3

For large numbers of channels, an additional 64 differential channels can be added by using the 3701-64 top box. There is not room for 64 BNCs on the front, so there are mass termination sockets on the back. Two of these top boxes may be fitted, giving a maximum of 128 channels of waveform input.

Spike2 Expansion: Digital BNC connections

CED Spike2 Expansion Box for CED Micro 1401-3

In some applications, such as many uses of Spike2, the digital inputs and outputs are heavily used for signals. It is convenient to have more of these connectors available on the front panel as BNCs, which is achieved by the 3001-9 top box.

Event Expansion: 12 Channel Event Expansions

Event Expansion: 12 Channel Event Expansions

The 2501-12 gives Spike2 twelve extra event inputs. These new events are sampled using the Spike2 digital marker channel. Each event input generates an 8 bit digital code and the codes are recorded on the digital marker channel. The unit can be installed as either a Micro1401 top box, or free standing. Free standing units can be used with other types of 1401.

The Micro1401-3 is a low cost, versatile data acquisition unit compatible with both Spike2 and Signal software suites. The on-board processor with high speed memory is optimized for real time processing, free from the constraints of the host computer operating system. Fast and accurate sampling coupled with simultaneous output offers extensive on-line experimental control.
