ArC1 Control Interface

Project description

Python + Qt5 interface to the ArC1 platform

This is the main repository of the ArC1 control panel, a tool to run tests on the ArC1 characterisation platform. Versatile and extensible it provides all you need to start characterising memory devices with your ArC ONE board. Powered by the Qt framework it is available on all major operating systems.


On Windows

For Windows a ready-to-run executable is provided in the releases page. Just unzip and run ArC ONE Control.exe. Please note that depending on your Windows version you might need to install the ARM mbed serial port driver.

On anything supported by Python + Qt5

You need to have Python ≥3.7 and git installed in your system. You can install the latest snapshot using the command.

pip install git+

Starting with v2.0.0-rc0 arc1_pyqt is also available from PyPI: pip install arc1_pyqt.


You should now have everything you need to characterise devices with your ArC1 board. Follow the user documentation for a complete guide on how to use the software for your experiments.


If the built-in functionality is not enough for your testing procedure you can create your own modules to better suit your needs. Custom modules must subclass arc1pyqt.modutils.BaseProgPanel and be placed in one of the standard module load directories which can be found under SettingsModule directories. You can either create a single-file module such as those that are shipped with arc1_pyqt and can be found under arc1_pyqt/ProgPanels or standard Python packages for more elaborate ones. On the top-level of your package you should have a python module with the same name as the module for arc1_pyqt to pick it up at startup.

If you want to develop on arc1_pyqt itself clone this repository and install its dependencies with python -m pip install -r requirements.txt.

I found a bug!

If arc1_pyqt does not behave as you would expect please open an issue describing the problem and how to reproduce it. Don't forget to mention the operating system you are running on!
