The Data Acquisition (DAQ) system connects to the CMOS Digital Image Sensor on the Miniscope V4 Rigid Flex PCB for data acquisition and sensor control. The DAQ connects to the PC via a USB 3.0 cable. It enumerates as a generic webcam using the USB Video Class (UVC) device protocol. Two extra digital I/O ports can synchronize external equipment.
The LabMaker DAQ system comes in a solid, black coated aluminum case that is unbreakable. This milled from the block case shields from electromagnetic interference. It is fully tested with the V4 firmware installed. To use it with the Miniscope the UCLA data acquisition software must be installed on your PC.
