Integrated Engine (Laser & DAQ)

The Axsun Integrated Engine enhances the Axsun SS-OCT Laser Engine with Balanced Photoreceivers, K-clock, and a Data Acquisition Board (DAQ), plus other optional OCT system components such as a Variable Delay Line (VDL) and OCT interferometer.

This Getting Started Guide covers the installation and basic operation of an Axsun Integrated Engine based on the Axsun Ethernet/PCIe DAQ (EDAQ). Instructions can be followed effectively without basic understanding of the EDAQ and its associated host software architecture, however this Architecture & Interface Background section includes critical knowledge for users and system integrators planning to employ more than very basic Integrated Engine and EDAQ functionality.

Additional information can be found in the SS-OCT Laser Engine Getting Started Guide, the SS-OCT Laser Engine Reference Manual and Ethernet/PCIe DAQ Board Reference Manual.

NOTE: For instructions on installing an Integrated Engine based on the Axsun Camera Link DAQ, use the SS-OCT Laser Engine Getting Started Guide and then refer to the CameraLink DAQ Board Reference Manual.
