Fits in the palm of your hand! Our low cost hs-tester is a precision arbitrary waveform generator that generates a variety of useful test signals for troubleshooting experiments. It enables rapid and automated testing of headstage functionality, channel gain and linearity, and input-referred noise measurement.


Tethers

Ultra flexible, 1.1 ~ 1.6 mm O.D. headstage tether cables are available as regular cables or with our unique lightweight inline slip-ring commutator. Cable length made to order, up to 10 meters long, with or without magnets for easy plugging.
