An inexpensive intelligent interface for coupling a PRA fluorescence lifetime instrument to a Microvax II
An inexpensive interface which can perform serial and parallel I/O operations necessary for instrument control and data transfer operations using time-correlated single photon counting instrumentation is described. Development of a compatible stepper motor system for controlling peripherals is also provided. This interface was implemented using an inexpensive Z80A based microcomputer. © 1986, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
