Carbon-Fiber Twisted Pairs for EEG and fMRI

Challenge

 

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.

Solution

 

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:

Guaranteed radio-translucence

A robust interconnect assembly for long product life

Zero-failure signal integrity due to dynamic in-process, in-house testing
