Controllers

Mirrorcle-designed controllers have a fast Microchip PIC32MZ MCU which provides USB communication, driving for MEMS devices, synchronization with other systems, and programmable hardware filtering to avoid overshoot and ringing.
The controllers are USB bus-powered and provides power for the embedded MEMS driver and low-power peripherals. These systems can run solely on a laptop powered by its battery.
Interfacing with the Controller is provided by Windows applications and APIs (C++, Matlab, LabView), as shown in many SDK examples and executables included with the Mirrorcle Software Suite (sold separately). Limited MEMS driving functionality is also possible via serial terminal commands.
