XDAQ Ports and Supported X-Headstages Explained

The XDAQ line supports both Record (X3R & X6R) and Stim-Record (X3SR) X-Headstages (as well as other Intan compatible headstages). Depending on the purchased configurations, some ports in the XDAQ might not be enabled by default. The rule of thumb is to use Port 1 and then add to other ports if necessary. Here are the break down of how many channels and which ports are supported by the XDAQ CORE and the XDAQ ONE models.

XDAQ CORE
SKU: XDAQ-CORE_S16 - supports total of 512 Rec channels and 16 Stim-Rec channels
SKU: XDAQ-CORE_S32 - supports total of 512 Rec channels and 32 Stim-Rec channels

RecStim-Rec
Port 1128ch16ch (-S16) or 32ch (-S32)
Port 2128chnon-functional
Port 3128chnon-functional
Port 4128chnon-functional


XDAQ ONE
SKU: XDAQ-ONE_R512_S64 - supports total of 512 Rec channels and 64 Stim-Rec channels
SKU: XDAQ-ONE_R512_S128 - supports total of 512 Rec channels and 128 Stim-Rec channels
SKU: XDAQ-ONE_R1024_S64 - supports total of 1024 Rec channels and 64 Stim-Rec channels
SKU: XDAQ-ONE_R1024_S128 - supports total of 1024 Rec channels and 128 Stim-Rec channels

RecStim-Rec
Port 1256ch32ch
Port 2256ch32ch
Port 3256ch (-R1024)32ch (-S128)
Port 4256ch (-R1024)32ch (-S128)


If there are ports that support additional channels than your device currently support, you may purchase and upgrade to support higher channel counts. It is cheaper to purchase the maximum number of channel counts than upgrading at a later stage. Note that it is not possible, for example, upgrade XDAQ CORE to drive 64ch of Stim-Rec X-Headstages.

Note, currently it is not possible to drive both R and SR X-Heastages at the same time. We may implement this at a later stage depending on interests.
