Title: INTERFACE UNIT AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING STIMULATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
The present disclosure describes an interface unit for controlling a stimulation system comprising a stimulator unit for applying stimulation signals to a subject and at least one measurement unit for measuring electric signals from the subject. The interface unit comprises a stimulator interface for sending trigger request signals to the stimulator unit in order to cause the stimulator unit to generate the stimulation signals in response to the trigger request signals, at least one a measurement interface for sending an A/D clock signal to the measurement unit in order to control sampling of an A/D conversion unit in the measurement unit and for receiving measurement data from the measurement unit, and a data interface for sending the measurement data to a control unit. The interface unit is configured to generate the A/D clock signal and the trigger request signals in synchrony such that a phase shift between the sampling of the A/D conversion unit and the stimulation signals remains constant.
