Price as configured: $0.00



The Squid Axon is a circuit based on the Hodgkin-Huxley equation describing the chaotic behaviour observed in giant squid axons. The inspiration for the module came from a 2003 paper by T. Matsuzaki & M. Nakagawa, titled 'A Bipolar Logistic Chaos Neuron and Its Hardware Implementation'.

Basically it is a four stage analog shift register with two feedback paths, one nonlinear and one linear. If you turn the feedback paths down to zero, you get a regular ASR. Turn up the feedback to get more complex and staggered patterns from the 4 CV outputs. It will happily run at audio rates as well.

Great kit!Review by nurse plissken
This was my first SMD build. It was a little challenging, but very doable. The layout was easy to follow for part placement. When it's all said and done, you have a squid brain simulator! Definitely worth it. (Posted on 11/12/2018)
