PC104 Control System


We have been involved for over two years in the development of a diode laser system for a medical application.

This did not only entail the diode power supply development, but the total instrument control system, which makes use of a PC104 computer with digital and analogue IO cards. This system of which 2 prototypes were built have recently successfully undergone all of the EMI and safety standard tests required for CE certification of a medical instrument.


Furthermore, the instruments have been used in successful clinical trials by the Department of Ophthalmology of the medical school of the University of Pretoria.
