Abstract

We describe our progress in the development of a software package to control a Fabry-Pérot interferometer (FPI) at the Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO). The FPI is a key part of our new Visible-Light Imaging Magnetograph (VIM). We describe the software libraries and methods that we use to develop the software. We also present specifications and characteristics of this new instrument.
