Send

event markers

via USB with

high precision.

Why?

To make sense of your data by overlaying event markers on them.

What is it?

c–pod makes it easy to send event markers from your computer to recording devices, and to do so affordably and with precision. It comes ready to plug into your specific research instrument.

2ms Precision. Jitter Free.

c–pod delivers your event markers with precision because it is jitter free when used with our open source Python or C++ libraries. Delay is guaranteed to be 2 milliseconds exactly, every time.

We spared no expense and added a separate USB interface chip that we knew would give us the precision needed.

Instantly Compatible

c–pod is a true plug-and-play solution: it is delivered with everything you need to connect to your particular model of EEG, eye tracker, NIR, or other recording instrument. Models are available for:

Powerful 32-bit, 44-pin microprocessor with built-in flash memory

Power Packed

c–pod is small but packs a real punch. Its 32-bit microprocessor makes possible the following feature:

Async Output

To send, say, a 10ms long event marker with other I/O devices, an app needs to raise the output line, wait 10ms, then lower the line. This adds timing uncertainty and makes the app more complex. With c–pod, you can deliver a 10ms marker while the app continues its work.

Scheduler

Pattern Generator

A truly unique feature: tell c–pod when to send pulses at a later time, e.g. to mark emotional points during a movie presentation.

Use c–pod as a signal generator on an output line or as a more complex pattern generator.

It’s All in the Family

Researchers have relied on StimTracker since 2008 for detecting events and sending event markers via USB, a solution that costs $1994 or $2494. When you only need to send event markers via USB, c–pod offers that capability at a fraction of the cost.

Easy to Install and Use

c–pod requires the installation of a USB driver, a five minute task. Each c–pod model comes with the right connector size, gender, and pin assignments. This makes it straightforward to connect to your EEG, eye tracker, or other recording equipment.

There are two LED lights on c–pod. The one on the right (🁢) confirms a connection to the computer. The one on the left () lights up every time an event marker is sent.
