This guide will take you through the assembly of the entire miniscope system.

Head Mounted Scope Assembly

A brief outline of steps to assemble the scope can get found here: File:AssemblingScope.pdf.

Lens Installation

Filter Set Installation

Excitation PCB Installation

CMOS Imaging Sensor PCB Installation

Data Acquisition System Assembly

We generally have all surface mount (SMD) components assembled on the DAQ PCB by a third party PCB assembly house leaving only the through-hole components to be assembled in lab. It is possible to have the assembly house place both SMD and through-hole components but it is more expensive and through-hole components are relatively easy to solder. A good through-hole soldering tutorial can be found here.

Through-hole component assembly

If you decide to have the through-hole components assembled by an assembly house you can skip this section.
