Paper Abstract

We present the general software design and acquisition facilities of GIANO, an ultra-stable IR echelle spectrometer optimized both for low (R ≃ 500) and high (R ≃ 50, 000) resolution, that will be mounted at Nasmyth-B focus of the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG). We describe the high-level software structure of the instrument, the user interface characteristics and the control of all subsystems. The management of GIANO sensors and controls of the mechanical movements is indeed a crucial issue that is handled by dedicated tasks. Monitoring of all these parameters is performed by means of separated processes running in background on the control workstation (PC). In this paper we will also schematically discuss the software for the instrument control, status display and setup, the quick look facility and the pipeline for data reduction.
