1 A laser will be controlled using the LabVIEW FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) module. The module will precisely control the two-dimensional motion of the laser. Once that has been finished, the program will be modified to monitor and control the intensity of the laser. This project will result in a program suitable for controlling laser eye surgery. When this is finished, it will demonstrate that procedures can more accurately and efficiently be controlled using the LabVIEW FPGA module. DEC03-07 Acknowledgment National Instruments – Provided FPGA hardware, motion device and LabVIEW software Problem Statement General Problem Statement – use LabVIEW FPGA to control a laser cutting device. General Solution Approach – Implement a two-dimensional control algorithm. LabVIEW FPGA is capable of parallel I/O (many simultaneous measurements). Use this to improve upon other control algorithms that are limited to a single measurement. LabVIEW FPGA gives domain experts (non-programmers) the ability to develop an efficient, I/O based control algorithm. C programmers are no longer needed. FPGA has the advantage of parallelism, making additional I/O measurements possible. Operating Environment Operates in a clean, indoor environment Runs on standard AC power supply Intended User(s) and Intended Use(s) Users – Engineers and domain experts Uses – Accurately cut materials such as plastic, extendable to laser eye surgeryAssumptions LabVIEW FPGA program will do all control and I/O Operation will need minimal supervision There will be no unnecessary people in the vicinity of the laser during operation Computer used will be sufficient to run LabVIEW FPGALimitations LabVIEW FPGA is not capable of performing floating-point calculations Required intensity accuracy of 0.1 mW/cm 2.
