Title areaDetector: EPICS Software for 2-D Detectors
  • M.L. Rivers
    CARS, Argonne, Illinois, USA
Abstract areaDetector is an EPICS framework for 2-D and other types of detectors that is widely used in synchrotron and neutron facilities. Recent enhancements to the EPICS areaDetector module will be presented. -Plugins can now run multiple threads to significant increase performance -Scatter/gather capability for plugins to run in parallel -ImageJ plugin that uses EPICS V4 pvAccess rather than Channel Access. Provides structured data with atomic update, and better performance than Channel Access plugin. -ImageJ plugin that allows graphically defining detector readout region, ROIs, and overlays. -Plugins can now be reprocessed without receiving a new NDArray for testing effect of different parameters, etc. A roadmap for future developments will also be presented.
