Using ALPAO Core Engine (ACE), our innovative and flexible software, controlling an AO loop has never been so easy!
ACE is an innovative, flexible software architecture for adaptive optics. ACE allows you to quickly and efficiently develop your own adaptive optics instruments.
With ACE’s object-oriented, modular architecture, you use only the modules needed to work efficiently. Performance is not sacrificed for ease-of-use. With ACE, it is possible to close the Adaptive Optics loop up to 1200Hz using ALPAO’s deformable mirrors and wavefront sensors.
For the most demanding applications, ALPAO can provide you ALPAO Real-Time Computer (RTC): a CPU linux based RTC running up to 5kHz with a pure delay lower than <150µs.
• Ease of use: user friendly interface customizable to your needs
• Flexibility: object-oriented modular architecture
• Speed: up to 5kHz
• Low latency and jitter: pure delay as low as 150µs
• Flexibility: modification of the code running on the control node
