The addition of TANGO software for the Power PMAC provides another option for synchrotron motion control community.
TANGO (TAco Next Generation Object) is a distributed control system, based on object oriented and service oriented approaches to software architecture. It is being actively developed by the collaborative effort of a group of European scientific institutes, including Alba, Desy, Elettra, ESRF, FRM II, Solaris and Soleil.
The first user of Observatory Sciences TANGO software library for the Power PMAC will be the Soleil synchrotron – the French national synchrotron which provides a multi-disciplinary instrument and research laboratory. The synchrotron is currently home to a number of high profile research projects.
