Paper Abstract

The WIYN One Degree Imager (ODI) exposure system must drive multiple complex subsystems requiring large amounts of configuration information that may change substantially between exposures. The mosaic OTA focal plane provides up to 64 streams of image data during readout or 512 ROI video streams for guidance or real time photometry. The work flows and instrument operation sequences are numerous, and are evolving to adapt to the new capabilities the mosaic OTA (Orthogonal Transfer Array) camera presents. By making scripting data driven, the ODI exposure system provides a very flexible, but structured and powerful paradigm for instrumentation process control and operation.
