Carbon-Fiber Twisted Pairs for EEG and fMRI
Capture Electroencephalography (EEG) Data Concurrently with Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)
Kappametrics’ flagship product, f-EEG™, employs noise cancellation techniques to eliminate large radio frequency and electrostatic and magnetic noise produced by the fMRI scanner. This enables the real-time collection of physiologic EEG data during fMRI.
The customer needed carbon-fiber twisted pairs with robust micro-terminations.
Minnesota Wire worked with Kappametrics to design and produce custom carbon-loaded material. We created extremely small wires of carbon-fiber twisted pairs for robust terminal connectivity of the electrodes. The design, for a revolutionary skullcap device, ensured:
A robust interconnect assembly for long product life
Zero-failure signal integrity due to dynamic in-process, in-house testing
