Adaptive Optics Software   Multi-core Processing   Realtime FPGA    Interfaces and Drivers   GUIs





The Adoptics ® software is the core of  AO systems developed for Northrop Grumman, Sandia Corporation, The University of Illinois, and Georgia State University. This image of Jupiter and Io was made using the AO system on the Mt. Wilson 100" Hooker  telescope. 


Riptide develops software for real time processing in multi-core architectures and computing clusters. A multi-core version of the Adoptics software was used  in this 16 core AMD Opteron system delivered to Northrop Grumman. 

  FPGA implementations include an Altera Stratix- based  277-actuator floating point complex exponential wavefront reconstructor algorithm. Additional product designs have been implemented in Altera Cyclone, Arria GX and Xilinx FPGAs.  

Using a combination of COTS hardware and in-house FPGA designs, Riptide designs  interfaces for high frame rate cameras and opto-electronic output devices. Shown is an 80 MegaActuator/second PCIe interface to a Xinetics DM amplifier system using the SOR-422 protocol.


This deformable mirror diagnostic window is one of the user-friendly control and diagnostic windows included in the Adoptics GUI.
