Do I need to use KonteX’s XDAQ system to use the X-Headstage?

No, you could use any existing Intan compatible controllers (from Intan, Open-Ephys, NeuroNexus Smartbox, etc). The X-Headstage is designed to use the micro HDMI connector, which is easy to plug in and can leverage our low cost, ultraflexible cable solution.

We provide adapters to interface the micro HDMI connector with Intan's 12-pin or 16-pin connector to their system. Alternatively, if you prefer, you may configure the X-Headstage with the Omnetics connectors and use existing cable solution. Note that the micro HDMI connector offers the flexibility of supporting both xR (record only) and xSR (switchable stim and record) headstages.
