Accessories for Miniscope V4 - Rigid Flex PCB

Founding developer Daniel Aharoni

After the sweeping success of the V3.2 Miniscope Daniel Aharoni continues to raise miniscope technology to new levels from his UCLA lab focussed on developing neuro-behavioral recording techniques for freely behaving animals. Significant contributors to the V4 were also the Cai and Shuman labs at Mount Sinai, and the Blair lab at UCLA.

It builds on the GolshaniSilva, and Khakh UCLA labs' initiative coordinated by Daniel Aharoni of making Mark Schnitzer's pioneering invention (Nature Methods 2011) open source. 

The UCLA miniscope community maintains a WiKi to help disseminate this open source technology to the larger neuroscience community.

The Miniscope V4 Rigid Flex PCB holds all the electronics needed to power and control the on-board CMOS imaging sensor, excitation LED and electrowetting lens.


  • ATmega328 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller
  • PYTHON 480 CMOS imaging sensor
  • BNO055 head orientation sensor
  • U.FL coax connector
  • Excitation LED and driver
  • Electrowetting lens driver

Made in Germany by a rigid-flex PCB specialist.
