ColdQuanta’s instrument control system is a single-box solution for providing analog and digital control signals to a variety of laboratory instruments. The system provides 20 analog outputs, 24 digital TTL outputs, a 25-pin output for programming ColdQuanta’s DDS-based frequency synthesizer, and three 1394 TTL outputs for directly driving mechanical shutters (Stanford Research Systems SR475 or SR476). All of the outputs are controlled via an internal FPGA that allows for real-time programming and synchronization.
- FPGA based architecture
