Breaking down neuralink
Brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) hold promise for the restoration of sensory and motor function and the treatment of neurological disorders.
Digitized broadband signals were processed in real-time to identify action potentials (spikes) using an online detection algorithm.
Neuralink builds arrays of small and flexible electrode “threads”, with as many as 3,072 electrodes per array distributed across 96 threads.
Neuralink built a neurosurgical robot capable of inserting six threads (192 electrodes) per minute
The electronics are built around the custom Neuralink application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), which consists of 256 individually programmable amplifiers.
