This guide will show you how to upload the miniscope firmware to the DAQ system and install the DAQ software on a PC.

Uploading Firmware

The USB Host Control on the DAQ PCB requires firmware to run. The firmware is written and compiled using the Cypress EZ-USB FX3 SDK. This SDK also comes with Cypress Control Center which can be used to upload the firmware image to the RAM of the USB Host Controller or, more likely, to the EEPROM on the DAQ PCB.
