64-bit processor with at least 4 cores, ≥ 3GHz.
Examples (Top Benchmark):
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
≥ 16 GB RAM
Additional RAM may be valuable for future ScanImage or user-specific requirements, e.g. online image analysis done in User Functions
We recommend PXIe based DAQ's (e.g. PXIe-6341) for Beams and Fast Z features, which reduces the PCIe slot requirements accordingly. Only the PCIe x1 slot for the MXI controller card is strictly required.
Additional PCIe slots may be valuable for future ScanImage or other user-specific requirements
If other graphics intensive applications are going to be used on the computer then a graphics card may be required. We recommend a GTX 960.
Recommend separate drives for OS and data logging/storage, to avoid contention and achieve maximum logging performance.
