Paper Abstract

FRIDA (inFRared Imager and Dissector for the Adaptive optics system of the Gran Telescopio Canarias) is a diffraction limited instrument that will offer broad and narrow band imaging and integral field spectroscopy with low, intermediate and high spectral resolutions in the 0.9 - 2.5 μm wavelength range. FRIDA will be installed at a Nasmyth focus of GTC, behind the AO system. The characteristics and development status of the Control and Housekeeping Electronics are described in this contribution. FRIDA is a collaborative project between the IAC (Spain), UNAM (México), UCM (Spain) and the UF (Florida), lead by UNAM.
