attocube’s electronics are state-of-the-art, fully digital FPGA-based control and sensor units, guaranteeing highest performance. Easy-to-use firmware upgrade tools enable the user to take advantage of software upgrades for years to come.
attocube’s control units possess a large variety of interfaces. All motion controllers enable the control using Ethernet (TCP/IP, EPICS, SPEC, TANGO), USB (DLL, LabVIEW), and Hardware Trigger (TTL, and/or AquadB). Many of those interfaces can be activated using a software key which can be purchased at any time.
All control electronics of attocube are equipped with either a wide-range or a switchable input power supply, allowing the units to be used in any country – world wide.
All attoMOTION controllers are compatible with the optional attoNAV remote control upgrade package. It contains the intuitive 3D mouse SpaceNavigator® as a joystick via USB interface to PC, and a dedicated software upgrade.
Many motion control electronics can be software-upgraded even years after purchase. For example, an ECC100 can be equipped with Ethernet or added software functionality at any time.
