SmartSoft-XPS is the Windows 10 release of PHI’s software for Quantera II, Quantera Hybrid, and Quantes. It includes an improved queue editor for enhanced control and flexibility of automated data acquisition and a new sidebar dashboard. New software features include large-area mosaic mapping of SXI and photoelectron maps, a faster Z-align and an improved algorithm for detector channel signature removal in the snapshot mode. It also includes the ability to enable SEE (System Evaluation Environment), a new service utility built into SmartSoft which periodically records all system parameters while SmartSoft is running. SEE can be extremely helpful in diagnosing system hardware issues and minimizing instrument downtime.
