XD-A Core Controller
The XD-A controller is a compact controller PCB, especially made for the closed-loop version of the XLA micro-actuator. It has USB connectivity,and closed loop control. There are some programmable analog and digital I/O. In short, the perfect OEM controller for the smallest micro-actuator in the world.

Piezo controller (PCB only)
The XD-A Core is a controller PCB for the XL-A micro-actuator. The controller reads the integrated encoder of the piezo micro-actuator through a ZIF connection, generates and amplifies the driving signals and communicates with a host controller or PC through a simple ASCII protocol. The controller comes with a user-friendly Windows interface and LabVIEW driver to steer the stage in closed loop. Once the controller is programmed, it can be disconnected from the PC and controlled of the programmable inputs and outputs.
Important steering parameters can be tuned digitally via the user interface. A motion sequence can be programmed in the user interface to steer the stage with a defined set of control parameters. One can also develop its own control interface by using one of Xeryon's software libraries. There are libraries available for C++, Python, Matlab or LabVIEW. More can be found on our software page. Upon request the XD-A Controller can also be ordered with a housing.
