2021-05-05 (5.1.10706)

  • Fix performance issue related to the configuration of User Outputs as calculated channels
  • Some additional fixes when loading-saving settings of User Outputs
  • Support for the MCVA5 and FEMTO preamplifiers by the User Inputs
  • New features in the Script module (additional LookUp Tables, and new command to move the tip)
  • New scale button in the Line Scan Monitors to have the same aspect ratio for both axes
  • Resizable Custom Views in the User Channels modules
  • Fix for control data entries in Approach-Retract module
  • Some minor changes

2021-02-16 (5.1.10464)

  • New advanced features in the Lock-In module (option to generate an output signal in sync with a frequency generator and option to use the demodulators as configurable filters for any signal)
  • Motor Control ANC350-V4 fixed and updated to newest 64bit library v1.2.0
  • Added Offset for Input channel in Temperature modules
  • Fix for progress bar in Bias Spectroscopy
  • Fix for high RT CPU load in certain systems which might create connection issues
  • Various other fixes and improvements

2020-12-30 (5.1.10347)

  • Major update to the High-Speed Sweep module, now allowing to repeat the sweep N times. Data can be exported into .dat or HDF
  • Bugfix in Bias Spectroscopy with Z Offset not being applied
  • Bugfix for PLL #2
  • Bugfix for Function Generator
  • Various other fixes and improvements

2020-10-24 (5.1.10010)

  • Fix bug when calculating the SC5 calibrated offsets for the analog inputs (hrDAC tuning)
  • Performance improvements Real-time system (especially important for users of older RC5 with NI PXIe-8115 Real-Time Controllers, where the CPU of the RT system could easily overload)
  • Performance improvements for some TCP Programming Interface functions
  • TCP Programming Interface changed to allow multiple connections, each of them executing the commands serially. To execute commands in parallel, use multiple connections
  • Callback VI section in Multipass available to all users
  • Added ports C&D to the DIO Trigger experiment
  • Support for new Programming Interface functions (e.g. stop PLL sweepers, Tip Shaper)
  • Bug fix related to the configuration of the MLS option in Bias Spectroscopy
  • Various other fixes and improvements

2020-06-18 (5.1.9651)

  • Scan Control: 3 new DIO trigger options for frame start, frame end, scan direction
  • Better support for systems with unipolar piezo outputs
  • Lock-in: can now demodulate all FPGA signals. Possible application: tandem demodulation (demodulate the output of another demodulator)
  • Lock-in demodulators can be used as generic low-pass filters by setting harmonic to 0
  • Various new functions in the Programming Interface / TCP Interface
  • Many other fixes and improvements

2020-02-07 (5.1.9226)

  • Switchable Scanner: optional module to switch the scan control between 2 scanners (one can be scanned, the other is kept at the current position)
  • Support for DIO Ports C & D added
  • New Attocube Motor Control for ANC350 v4
  • New motor module with 1 TTL line fully configurable
  • Cloud mode was improved to allow more points and massive better performance for point manipulation
  • Piezo Calibration: new voltage limits per calibration profile

2019-09-30 (5.1.8718, first release of V5e)

Changes in V5e compared to V5:

  • High-speed scanning (up to 1 M Pixel per second)
  • High-speed spectroscopy (up to 1 MS/s)
  • Higher Z-Controller bandwidth possible
  • AFM Extensions for more advanced AFM operation, e.g. Q-Control
  • 64-bit software, allowing allocation of larger memory blocks and thus e.g. higher resolution scanning
