Paper Abstract

The University of Hawaii experimental adaptive optics system is controlled by dual SPARC single board computers on a VME backplane. One processor is dedicated to the feedback loop. The second processor manages loop data flow to a workstation and transfers new control parameters to the loop processor without stopping the loop. This system facilitates cause-effect analysis of the various system parameters.
