Ethernet Module

The Bpod Ethernet module allows devices on the local network to exchange messages with the state machine (v0.7-0.9, 2.0).

For state machine v2, it can also act as the primary communication channel, replacing the USB cable. This allows computers to be significantly more distant from the rigs they control. To do this, upload SM_Relay firmware to the Ethernet module, Ethernet-routed state machine firmware to the state machine, and call Bpod with an IP address argument  - e.g. Bpod(''). Note: you must have MATLAB software v1.5.3 or newer.

NOTE: Currently, the module requires the MATLAB instrument control toolbox. An alternative (free and open) interface via PsychToolbox is under development.
