LabVIEW Test/Measurement - Optics 2
VARIOUS PROJECT ASSIGNMENTS
For a high tech client, Summit Technology Services, Inc. has been involved with several projects relating to LabVIEW, optics and measurements systems.
- Installed several measurement systems utilizing NI’s LabVIEW software: This included debugging the optical path, software, designing the replacement of an obsolete optical switch (Hardware and software), and implementing the switch upgrade.
- Wrote the software to replace tunable lasers with fixed lasers for the Aries system.
- Designed and wrote software to monitor a laser source hub. The software collected data using GPIB communication. The data was saved to a spreadsheet file and broadcast onto the network using NI DataSocket. In addition, developed “Objects” for new test equipment to be used in all LabVIEW applications, found and eliminated errors in existing programs, and designed the hardware and software for automating the Characterization Bench. Trained the Measurement and Control Technicians on troubleshooting LabVIEW and optic systems.
- In emergency situations, tested and certified couplers, and supported Measurement Engineers and technicians to get production benches running and certified. Supported the Mercury Draws when other resources have not been available.
