From 50 kHz up to 1 MHz A-scan rate, see deeper and sharper than ever before
The fast evolution of the OCT technology is driven by “seeing better, seeing deeper and seeing faster”. Acqiris solutions for SS-OCT include dedicated software tools and a flexible on-board FPGA processing engine to meet these requirements. Acqiris SS-OCT solutions optimize your complete SS-OCT system by enhancing image clarity and quality.
Acqiris has experience in both industrial and medical OCT systems for ophthalmology, endoscopy or dermatology, and applications including angiography (OCT-A) and phase sensitive OCT. Our solutions for SS-OCT are bundles designed for customers who want best-in-class performance. You can select to perform all or only part of our available SS-OCT signal processing on-board depending on your application, your existing software components and your own experience.
We propose two data acquisition cards (DAQs / digitizers) targeted to your SS-OCT application:
U5303A: ADC / DAQ card from 50 kHz to 100 kHz Ascan rate
SA220P: ADC / DAQ card from 200 kHz Ascan rate and up to above 1 MHz
Many decision factors need to be considered when selecting the appropriate signal acquisition card for a SS-OCT project. Decision criteria embodies technological, financial and risks management.
1. Maximize image clarity and quality
Acqiris solutions for SS-OCT come with real time processing, including dynamic K-space re-mapping, FFT, log scaling and fast readout of B-scan to the host computer, C++ API dedicated to SS-OCT allowing to control all programmable features of the ADC card and the dedicated real time OCT processing, project and example for C++ compatible with Visual Studio and a dedicated OCT GUI.
Phase sensitive applications are supported, allowing to read phase and magnitude simultaneously. With custom Integrated Circuit (IC) designed by Acqiris, the SS-OCT solutions implement an unique real-time internal trigger time interpolator enabling a high trigger resolution and a precise and accurate phase measurement.
2. Reduce the total financial cost through your full project lifecycle
Acqiris offers solutions adapted to your innovation plans. Acqiris assists you from the earliest stages of system development until the end of your product obsolescence in order for you to have a full control of your budget throughout the full project’s life cycle.
3. Limit the risks with your new product introduction
Acqiris provides unique services to easier evaluation and integration into your instrument including easy to use dedicated evaluation and API (Application Programming Interface) tools, analog outputs control, high quality and reliability, long term support and full visibility about our product life cycle.
Thanks to two analog output aimed at controlling your optical scanner, Acqiris helps to reducing your system electronic and consequently contributes to reduce the size and the power consumption of your system.
4. Select the signal acquisition form-factor needed in your design
Acqiris gives flexibility when designing your SS-OCT systems by providing two different form factors: PCIe ADC card or ADC module with serial-link enclosure. You select the version that either provides fewer constraints on your external processors, or that ensures easy design upgrades by “leveraging” a large part of your existing systems.
