ATIK OSX Drivers - Alpha2 release
      #5608804 - 01/06/13 04:50 PM Attachment (21 downloads)

If you're an Mac developer that uses ATIK you're going to like this post...

Please find attached the Alpha2 OSX Driver frameworks. These are alpha-release and should not be used for production code.

Things tested so far: 383L+ mono, Titan mono, 16IC mono and EFW2 filterwheel.

These cameras should work with exposures, sub-frames, binning (artificially limited to 3x3 for this release) preview mode, Setpoint cooling/read temps,

The support for the Full frame 4000/11000 is experimental. Although I can see the camera goes though the motions to provide an image, as the carcass I have doesn't have a sensor then I can't verify it. However plans are afoot to resolve this

And there you have it.. next release should be beta with a few bells and whistles, bug fixes and removal of the mandatory tracing currently provided to your desktop!

If you have any issues - please send me the ATIKOSXDrivers.log or ATIKOSXLegacyDrivers.log to me.

I forgot to mention - I don't work for ATIK. However back in 2011 I signed an NDA agreement covering the source code for this. This allows me to distribute the binary however I cannot provide you with the sources - sorry!

Update with just the minor addition of an example application using the drivers.

The Alpha2 drivers took their first image through an ATIK 11000 and 320E today!
