  • Patent number: 9536702
    Abstract: A multi-beam particle microscope includes first particle optics in order to direct particle beams onto an object, a detector with detection regions, with a transducer being assigned to each detection region, and a data acquisition system, which has a control computer system, image recording computer systems and a screen. The image recording computer systems receive electrical signals from the transducers and generates a first file, which represents a high resolution image, and a second file, which represents a low resolution image. The control computer system maintains a data structure which represents an assignment of transducers to two-dimensional spatial vectors and depicts the images on the screen, wherein a reference point in each image is arranged on the screen in a coordinate system of the screen at a location which is defined by a sum of a leading vector, which is the same for all images, and the spatial vector.

  • Patent number: 5956377
    Abstract: An apparatus is disclosed for synchronizing frames in a continuous stream of digital data consisting of a plurality of master frames (M-bits long) containing data and a constant synchronization word and having an associated bit clock. The apparatus includes a FIFO buffer, a synchronization word register (containing the constant synchronization word) and a comparator operably connected to the FIFO buffer and the synchronization word register to generate a sync detect signal representing whether the portion of the continuous stream of data contained in the FIFO matches the constant synchronization word. The apparatus further includes a frame bit counter controlled by the sync detect signal and the associated bit clock, which generates a frame sync signal every M-bits, a counter connected to a first comparator that generates a sync achieved signal upon the counter output value equaling a first predetermined value and means for incrementing the counter upon coincidence of the sync detect and frame sync signals.
