Digital signal processors have made it possible to control scanned probe microscopes using straightforward software emulations of analog circuits. Using a system consisting of a commercially available digital signal processor board interfaced to analog I/O, we have developed algorithms for self-optimizing feedback, raster generation (with hysteresis correction, sample tilt compensation, and scan rotation), lock-in detection, and automatic tip-sample approach. We also discuss an instruction parser that takes advantage of the digital architecture to allow automatic operation for extended periods.
