EEG Hardware

NeuroSky delivers fully integrated, single chip EEG biosensors. NeuroSky enables its partners and developers to bring their brainwave application ideas to market with the shortest amount of time, and lowest end consumer price.

Our partners range from embedded system designers to consumer electronic device integrators and game developers. NeuroSky offers two families of EEG products: for the embedded system designer, the ThinkGear ASIC Module (TGAM) EEG sensor PCB module. And, for systems integrator and game developers, the MindWave family of EEG-monitoring headsets can be bundled into a variety of products.

ThinkGear™ AM

The ThinkGear AM (TGAM) EEG sensor PCB module powers over 1 million consumer EEG devices around the globe.

TGAM is the core of our brainwave sensing technology. TGAM allows NeuroSky partners to bring EEG-based consumer technologies to market quickly and efficiently. The TGAM is the world’s most popular EEG solution. Together with dry-electrode, it senses the signals from the human brain, filters out extraneous noise and electrical interference and converts to digital power. This “brain-power” can be used in games, applications, toys, and research.

Embedded within the TGAM, is the TGAT chip, a powerful, fully integrated single chip EEG sensor. The chip comes programmed with NeuroSky eSense, A/D, amplification off head detection, and noise filtering for EMG and 50/60Hz AC powerline interference.

The TGAM is priced to power mass adoption in toys, mobile devices, educational gear and other products.
