Accessories for Miniscope - CMOS PCB

Founding developers Daniel Aharoni, Peyman Golshani, Alcino Silva and Baljit Khakh

The Golshani, Silva, and Khakh Labs at the University of California, Los Angeles, with Daniel Aharoni as main coordinator collaborated in the development of the Miniscope. Its design was pioneered by Mark Schnitzer's Lab at Stanford and published in Nature Methods in 2011. The UCLA miniscope community maintains a WiKi to help disseminate this open source technology to the larger neuroscience community.

CMOS imaging sensor PCB for UCLA Miniscope

The CMOS imaging sensor PCB holds all the electronics needed to power and control the CMOS imaging sensor and excitation LED. A list of circuit features and components are listed below

    • Power over coax filter to separate data/control stream from DC power.
    • 3.3V and 1.8V power regulators.
    • Red LED shows board is powered properly and can be used for animal tracking.
    • Serializer interfaces with imaging sensor and packages data to be sent over coax.
    • A Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) and constant current source are used to control and power the excitation LED.
