  • Win8: YES
  • Win7 64bit: YES
  • Win7 32bit: NO
  • WinXP: NO

Supported Hardware (for MicroTime200):

Harps (TCSPC units)

PicoHarp 300

Scanner (not tested by PicoQuant Support)

  • MadCityLabs created a DLL which allows SymPhoTime 64 to use a specific MCL scanner. The support for this scanner is entirely handled by MadcityLabs and not by PicoQuant.

Brightfield Camera

  • IDS UI-3370CP-NIR-GL 1“ monochrome camera 2048×2048

CAN & Frame Grabber

  • Matrix Vision PCIe Framegrabber
    Note: Driver changed in SPTv2.3: New driver may affect the brignthness of the camera image. SPT versions v0.0 - v2.2 are incompatible with the new driver, SPT versions v2.3 - … are incompatible with the old driver. (Incompatibility leads to a frozen splash screen.)
  • Peak CAN PCIe board
    Note: older versions of PCAN PCI board could also work, but then make sure that the new PC has an old type PCI slot.
  • Both cards should be installed in a PCIexpress 1x slot. See slots in red circles in the image below.
  • If your system is (to be) equipped with a TH260 TCSPC card this card as also to be installed into a PCIexpress x1 slot.

not supported:

  • DataTranslation PCI framegrabbe
  • TimeHarp 200
  • HydraHarp v.1.0 - Firmware upgrade to HydraHarp v2.xx necessary before using the SymPhoTime 64.
