EPICS Software

This is a collection of EPICS drivers and other software that have been developed or improved at the INFN-LNL during these years among the different projects and times. The list might be incomplete or outdated, but we will try to keep it updated. Most of the work done is based on the knowledge shared among the EPICS Community through meetings, conferences and seminars. Thanks to all of them for the extraordinary support.

If not differently specified, all the software available for download as gzipped tar files is licensed under the terms of EPICS Licence.


EPICS Applications

LivEPICS is a Linux Live CD (and a USB bootable all-in one solution) that includes: Epics base, Extensions tools, introductory documents and manuals. It has the complete functionality to develop a small control system, but it is mainly intended for training classes or to monitor and supervise an EPICS network. LivEPICS is copyright under GNU General Pubblic Licence.





Device and Driver Support

A set of Device and Driver support have been implemented to communicate with several hardware through several communication protocols. Many packages are related to old techonology but it is useful to keep them available.
