Microscopy Controllers

multi-purpose SPM electronics

The ASC500 is a modular and flexible digital SPM controller which combines state-of-the-art hardware with innovative software architecture, offering superior performance and unprecedented variety of control concepts. It was developed with the goal to never be the limiting factor in any scanning probe microscopy (SPM) experiment.

The controller comes in two different versions: a basic version, which is intended for use with confocal microscopy, and the full version, which includes all necessary additional features needed for AFM control, such Z feedback, and the high-frequency section. The basic version can be upgraded to the full version conveniently by simply purchasing software upgrades.
