Recapitulate ScanImage 4 (resonant scanning) features with
March 2015 (early)
|SFN 2015||New features beyond ScanImage 5, including galvo arb-scanning, |
multi-scanner, and other features specified by ScanImage 5 members.
Early-access releases will be available exclusively to ScanImage 5 members.
ScanImage 5 will have customization layers for both CPU and FPGA-based processing (latter for resonant scanned imaging only) which can be used to implement online or real-time analysis, including closed-loop experiments with parallel imaging and (photo)stimulus.
ScanImage 2015 will support the same scanner/digitizer hardware as ScanImage 5
ScanImage 5 Scanner Hardware
ScanImage 5 requires a pair of scanners (one resonant and one galvo scanner) to achieve video-rate area scanning operation.
ScanImage 5 users can choose either:
scanner system that combines a resonant scanner and galvo scanner
scanner components - one resonant scanner and one galvo scanner
ScanImage 5 Scanner Systems
Sutter Instrument systems:
ScanImage 5 Resonant Scanner Components
Cambridge Technology components
- CRS 8Khz (part 6SC08KA012-02Y)
- CRS 12Khz (part 6SC12KA012-02Y)
- Classic CRS-8 scanner
ScanImage 5 Galvo Scanner Components
Any analog-driven galvo scanner component, including galvanometer-mounted mirror and servo driver circuit, can be used.
The following are typical choices from Cambridge Technology
Class 0 servo topology is recommended, but not required
ScanImage 5 DAQ Hardware
ScanImage 5 will use National Instruments PXI FlexRIO platform.
ScanImage 5 has required, user-selected, and user-optional DAQ components
User-Selected DAQ Components
For SI 5, there will be no difference in operation.
User-Optional DAQ Components
PCIe-6321 option is cheaper, but requires additional wiring and uses a computer PCIe slot
Example tested ScanImage 5 computer systems will be provided by the early-access release date.
