Tramea Software

The Tramea™ software provides a superior integrated framework with impressive embedded functionality. Yet, it is easily expandable for customized experiments using either the existing add-on modules or user-programmed functions.

The Nanonis Tramea™ software is based on the latest developments in programming techniques and signal processing to provide a more powerful experimental platform. With its modular architecture and multi-window application all data are acquired simultaneously and transmitted to all software instruments at all times. Only the windows and functions necessary for the current experiment need to be open compared to an interface with a single window that often will have irrelevant sections displayed using valuable screen real estate. The window layout and settings can be stored and recalled at the click of a button for quick experiment switching.

Up to 24 Inputs, up to 48 outputs plus internal signals for a total of 128 signals, 24 of which are seamlessly accessible at the same time throughout the entire Nanonis software. Any signal can be selected in any module for observation, acquisition or noise analysis without affecting other modules. With the modular architecture, all data are acquired simultaneously and transmitted to all software instruments at all times. The distinction between inputs and outputs is blurred to provide a more powerful experimental platform. All operations between signals are performed in the digital domain with intuitive software-control without the drawbacks of analog signal processing. Signals are displayed in physical units using a floating point representation with assigned SI units for immediate quantitative results. Up to 24 signals can be streamed to disk at full real-time speed.

A typical transport measurement could take an enormous amount of time due to the limited speed of most  measurement systems. With Nanonis Tramea™, these measurements can be performed in a matter of minutes instead of several hours: the core module of the Tramea software is a fast sweeper module capable of two- and three-dimensional sweeps, and capable of generating and acquiring up to 20’000 points per second on 24 channels in parallel. That’s up to 1000x faster than current systems, without any compromise in signal quality. Combine the speed of a waveform generator with the performance of a precision DC source.
