TGGALVO / 4 Channel DAC card

CAUTION! On startup the card outputs will swing to -10Volts briefly. This may damage instruments that aren't designed to handle negative input.

TGGALVO card is a variant of the MicroMirror card(TGMM4) capable of running the same(or other) firmware. Instead of the MEMS drive electronics, it buffers, amplifies and outputs the DAC signals.



  • TGGALVO has four 12 bit DAC onboard.
  • Has TTL pins connected to TG-1000's backplane, so it can sync with other cards in the TG-1000 controller?
  • Multiple DAC output voltage modes are available. Like 0V to 2.048V, 0V to 4.096V, 0V to 10.24V, -1.024V to 1.024V, -2.048V to 2.048V, -5.128V to 5.128V and -10.24V to 10.24V(default). Set with the PM command
  • Can output a maximum of 10ma per channel.
  • 100 ohm resistor in series at BNC output
  • 5th order programmable Bessel filter is present on each DAC channel to filter out DAC aliasing effects.
  • Can be configured to drive a Galvo amplifier, Piezo amplifier and other devices that can accept an analog voltage input.
  • Compatible with Micro-Manager and diSPIM plugin.
