OPERATION
Methods involved in operating the MEMS device

void StopDataStream()#
Stops the data output operation of the device. Sampling stops asynchronously as soon as command is received by device. Outputs remain at values of last sample X, Y, M (or X, Y, R, G, B etc.) and object obtains info about the last outputted sample.

void SendDataStream(float *x, float *y, unsigned char *m, unsigned int numSamples, unsigned int delaySamples = 0, bool minimizeJump = true, bool compensateFilterDelay = true)#
SendDataStream sends (X,Y) positional coordinates, 8bit Digital Output numbers, and additional settings for the output operation to the Controller.
By default, the device will start outputting the data after everything is received. To prevent this, preface this function with a call to StopDataStream().
 Parameters:
x – [in] The array of X positional coordinates (Cartesian) to be sent with range of 1 to 1
y – [in] The array of Y positional coordinates (Cartesian) to be sent with range of 1 to 1
m – [in] The array of 8bit Digital Output numbers (unsigned) to be sent with range of 0255.
numSamples – [in] Number of samples to be sent to the Controller. Range is from 1 to the length of the passed X/Y/M arrays (or maximum buffer size for the Controller).
delaySamples – [in] delaySamples is a parameter that allows user to adjust output timing of the digital output with respect to the X,Y outputs by delaying the digital output by a number of samples. delaySamples should be a value between 0 and numSamples1 which is maximum amount of msamples rotation possible. When value is 0, there is internal delay added to compensate for the hardware filter’s group delay regardless, so this compensation can be increased by this parameter.
minimizeJump – [in] A true/false value that dictates whether the function will rotate the data stream so that the distance between the first sample in the new stream is closest to the last sample of the previously sent stream. This is done to minimize the jump and, in turn, any excitation of resonance when transitioning from one stream to next.
compensateFilterDelay – [in]
A true/false value that dictates whether the function will rotate the m data (digital output) with respect to the x,y data based on the estimated group delay of the hardware lowpass filter onboard the Controller. Default value
is true: function will internally delay (buffer rotate) the m samples before streaming to the Controller. When false, the x,y,m data will stream to the Controller exactly as arranged by the user in the function call.

void StartDataStream(int repeatCount = 1, bool confirmOnComplete = true)#
Starts the output operation of the device.
 Parameters:
repeatCount – The number of times the Controller should output the data stream. If repeatCount is 0 or less, the Controller will output the data stream infinitely until stopped.
confirmOnComplete – If confirmOnComplete = false, the function will not wait for a receipt from the device that the data stream was outputted. confirmOnComplete is only useful when repeatCount is not 1.

void ResetDevicePosition()#
Resets the MEMS device position back to its origin. It is a special case of GoToDevicePosition with (X, Y) = (0, 0) and 10ms step duration ResetDevicePosition function also resets any output offsets to (0, 0) For more details see GoToDevicePosition

void GoToDevicePosition(float x, float y, unsigned char m, unsigned int mSec = 5)#
MEMS device will be stopped and position will be changed from stopped position (XStop, YStop) to new (X, Y) with a step of a specific duration of time, specified by user in as (mSec) in milliseconds.
It should be noted that the step happens after approx. 100200ms of communication and processing. If step time parameter (mSec) is omitted in the function call, the function will use a default value of 5ms. Note that the actual step time of the device from stopped position to new position is ultimately a function of both the stated (mSec) parameter and the bandwidth setting of the hardware filters or HardwareFilterBw which may additionally increase the step time.
Furthermore, if the requested step time is too short for a given MEMS mirror design, and HardwareBandwidthBw is too high, the device may take a longer time to settle into new position while overshooting and ringing about the position.
 Parameters:
x, y – [in] The (X,Y) Cartesian coordinates, with range of 1 to 1
m – [in] The modulation data, with range of 0255
mSec – [in] The duration of the step between (XStop, YStop) and new (X, Y). Range of mSec is 1 to 5000 except in special case where 0 is acceptable. Use mSec=0 to move the device with minimal step time. In the case of mSec=0, only a single step is streamed and mirror will step in the time limited only by the HardwareFilterBw  therefore this can be potentially damage or destroy the device if hardware filter bandwidth is not set to recommended or reasonably low limit.

RotateData performs transformations (rotations about 3 axes, sequentially) on a given set of points.
This function first checks if rotation or translation is necessary. Rotation is performed only when thetas are not close to 0.
For rotation, the function firstly determines the rotation Origin (offset for xaxis, yaxis, zaxis for the respective rotations). default (omitting last 3 parameters) and useDataOrigin==true will set that origin to center of data bounding box (‘data origin’) omitting last 2 parameters and useDataOrigin==false will set that to 0,0 user entries xOrigin and yOrigin and useDataOrigin==false will set that to xOrigin, yOrigin Then data is rotated about the offset xaxis, yaxis, zaxis, in that sequential order.

LinearRasterPattern constructs a linear raster scan pattern based on the given parameters.
 Parameters:
xData – [inout] X position output container with preallocated length (recommended 1,000,000 points for large waveform streaming)
yData – [inout] Y position output container with preallocated length (recommended 1,000,000 points for large waveform streaming)
mData – [inout] 8bit Digital Output number output container with preallocated length (recommended 1,000,000 points for large waveform streaming)
Bit 0: On during the “active” portion of line
Bit 1: On during the pixel portion of line
Bit 2: Pulsed at the beginning of the frame
Bit 3: Indicates YAxis direction (if implemented). High for increasing Y position, low for decreasing Y position.
Bit 4: On during the “active portion of line” (same as Bit 0)
Bit 5: On during the “active portion of line” (same as Bit 0)
Bit 6: On during the “active portion of line” (same as Bit 0)
Bit 7: On during the “active portion of line” (same as Bit 0)
xAmp – [in] Amplitude of Xaxis of the raster scan (normalized from 0.0 to 1.0)
yAmp – [in] Amplitude of Yaxis of the raster scan (normalized from 0.0 to 1.0)
numLines – [in] Total number of raster lines. During each line scan there is a high output on DOut0, and during each turnaround there is a low output on DOut0.
numPixels – [in] When ppMode = true, numPixels corresponds to the number of stopandgo locations (“pixels”) along a line. In both ppMode = false and ppMode = true, numPixels corresponds to the number of equally spaced Digital Output pulses along a line, contained in Bit 1 of mData.
lineTime – [in] Duration of time allocated to each raster line in seconds. The time is specifically allocated to the ‘active’ portion of each line. The actual scan along one line will include a small additional percentage of time for turnaround.
ppMode – [in] ppMode = 1 corresponds to pointtopoint raster with near stopping at each point. ppMode = 0 corresponds to a uniform velocity line raster.
retrace – [in] Toggles between bidirectional writing on (1) and off (0)
triggerShift – [in] Number of samples the synchronous digital output should be rotated with respect to the MEMS Driver X, Y output (can be negative or positive). User may want to differently align the locations of the TTL pulses on DOut03 and can therefore rotate forward or backward a number of samples.
theta – [in] Rotation angle for the raster pattern (looking toward display surface) in radians. Passing 0 results in vertical lines.
sps – [inout] Sample rate of raster scan. The user can preset this sample rate, however the function will likely override and return (inplace) the rate based on the numLines and numPixels input to best match the desired scan
spsMin – [in] Sets the lower limit for samplespersecond rate generated internally by the function. Typically this is the controller’s lower sample rate limit (MTIDeviceLimits::SampleRate_Min).
spsMax – [in] Sets the upper limit for samplespersecond rate generated internally by the function. Typically this is the controller’s upper sample rate limit (MTIDeviceLimits::SampleRate_Max).
 Returns:
Returns the number of points in the constructed scan pattern.

 Parameters:
xData – [inout] X position output container with preallocated length (recommended 100,000 points)
yData – [inout] Y position output container with preallocated length (recommended 100,000 points)
mData – [inout] 8bit Digital Output number output container with preallocated length (recommended 100,000 points)
xPoint – [in] Array of X position keypoints specifying the path for the function to trace
yPoint – [in] Array of Y position keypoints specifying the path for the function to trace
mPoint – [in] Array of M 8bit Digital Output number keypoints specifying the digital output number at each position on the path. Note that the M value for step segments between points is forced to 0 by the function, so the specified M value is only sampled by the Controller at the corresponding X/Y position for the amount of time tPoint[position]  stepTime.
tPoint – [in] Array of time keypoints specifying the time spent at each position on the path (in milliseconds) Note that the time allocated with tPoint to a given point is a total of time dwelling at position plus the stepTime to next position therefore dwell time at position is tPoint[position]stepTime unless stepTime is longer than allocated time
nPoints – [in] Number of keypoints in the xPoint, yPoint, mPoint, and tPoint arrays to be used in the pattern
stepTime – [in] Desired time spent on the step/transition between points (in milliseconds) Note that if stepTime is 0 or too small, function will assign a minimum number of points to the step (usually 6 samples) stepTime should be less than any tPoint since dwellTime[position] = tPoint[position]stepTime
sps – [inout] Sample rate of the pointtopoint scan. If the sample rate is set to 0, the function will calculate the optimal sample rate for the given path parameters and populate the given reference. For a nonzero sample rate, the function will attempt to use the given sample rate. Note that user must use the sample rate sps when sampling this waveform to have the resulting scan follow prescribed pointtopoint timing
spsMin – [in] Sets the lower limit for samplespersecond rate generated internally by the function. Typically this is the controller’s lower sample rate limit (MTIDeviceLimits::SampleRate_Min).
spsMax – [in] Sets the upper limit for samplespersecond rate generated internally by the function. Typically this is the controller’s upper sample rate limit (MTIDeviceLimits::SampleRate_Max).
 Returns:
Returns the number of points in the constructed pointtopoint pattern.
