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, in 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 Xeryon's LabVIEW driver. Upon request the XD-A Controller can also be ordered with a housing.
