areaDetector

Build Status

The top-level repository for the EPICS areaDetector software. This repository contains mostly documentation, configuration files, and a top-level Makefile to build the entire areaDetector package.

The areaDetector code is contained in submodules under this module. Four of these are “core” submodules:

  1. ADSupport. This contains the source code for support libraries (TIFF, JPEG, HDF5, XML2, etc.). This is required for Windows and vxWorks, and can optionally be used on Linux and Darwin.
  2. ADCore. This contains the base classes, plugins, and documentation.
  3. ADSimDetector. This contains an example 2-D simulation detector driver and IOC.
  4. ADViewers. This contains viewers for displaying areaDetector images in ImageJ and IDL.

All of the other submodules (ADProsilica, ADPilatus, etc.) contain drivers and EPICS IOC applications for specific detectors.

The Installation Guide provides build and install instructions.
