64-bit processor with at least 4 cores, ≥ 2GHz
Processors/systems with at least 6 cores may be valuable for future ScanImage or user-specific requirements combining TPLSM imaging with other simultaneous processing/acquisition
≥ 8 GB RAM
Additional RAM may be valuable for future ScanImage or user-specific requirements, e.g. online image analysis done in User Functions
Additional PCIe slots may be valuable for future ScanImage or other user-specific requirements
A separate drive or partition for OS and data logging/storage is recommended, to avoid contention
Either a RAID 0 magnetic drive pair or solid-state drive (SSD), whole or partition, is recommended for data logging/storage, to achieve high performance.
