FB128 Neural Simulator

The FB128 Neural Simulator is an essential tool for testing and debugging experimental paradigms. The compact, battery-operated device simulates neurological waveforms or tones. Neurological simulations include continuous LFPs and spikes. Up to eight spike waveform shapes may be included depending on the mode.

The FB128 directly connects to ZIF-Clip headstages (16 to 128 channels). The FB128-OMN includes connectors for Omnetics headstages (16 and 32 channels).

Simplify Troubleshooting & ConfigurationFB128 Neural Simulator Modes

The simulator can operate in eight different modes and includes an inhibitory/excitatory option for even more output variations. The simulation modes are listed on the face of the module and LEDs indicate which is active. Operational buttons or switches, a trigger input, and a charger input are positioned on one end of the module and output connectors for headstage connection are positioned on the other.

The FB128’s flexible operational modes include:

  • Normal – neurological waveforms, including spike waveforms and LFP
  • Hash – Normal with spikes scaled down by a factor of 2
  • LFP Only – Normal with spikes scaled to 0
  • Tetrode – neurological LFP waveforms with spikes, where spikes on each group of 4 channels fires synchronously
  • Sync 100 Hz – neurological LFP waveforms with spikes on all channels firing synchronously at 100 Hz fixed rate
  • Tone 30 Hz – 30 Hz tone at 1000 µV on all channels
  • Tone 1000 Hz – 1000 Hz tone at 100 µV on all channels
  • Tone Ref – 100 Hz tone at 1000 µV on Reference channel only


Test Omnetics headstages with the FB128-OMN

The FB128-OMN includes two Omnetics connectors for testing 16-channel and 32-channel Omnetics headstages.
