12 September 2005 Characterization of computer I/O peripherals for use in adaptive optics
Author Affiliations +
Modern microprocessors are rapidly reaching performance levels that make them suitable for wavefront sensing and correction. This has the combined advantage of reducing system costs and a smaller footprint for the control system. These reductions have provided adaptive optics system designers with the capability of producing small form factor and low power system compared to just a few years ago. In recent work on the NRL portable adaptive optics system, our group has investigated implementing alternative computer peripherals for deformable and tip/tilt mirror control to support the low power low cost approach. This paper reports on characterization of several computer peripherals for use within adaptive optics systems with a focus on minimizing size, weight, cost and power consumption.
