Conference paper


This paper deals with designing and testing new software functions for control of a mass spectrometer, which is type of TOF-MALDI and for depositing interface. The functions are tested on virtual motion analyses of 3D CAD model. Then they are implemented in final application for real system. Applications and functions are developed in graphical development system National Instruments LabVIEW and 3D models of devices are made in SolidWorks.
