Paper Abstract

The Astrophysical Technology Group of the INAF-AOT, as part of a consortium led by ESO, has carried out a feasibility study for the Control Software and Electronics of a new generation optical spectrograph, named ESPRESSO. ESPRESSO has been conceived as a high-efficient, high-resolution, fiber-fed spectrograph of high mechanical and thermal stability to be located at the Coude Combined Laboratory of the VLT. These features together with its ability to gather light from 4-UT simultaneously made ESPRESSO a very challenging instrument. This paper presents an overview of the control software and electronics concept design focusing on the more critical and innovative aspects of the spectrograph.
