SHAKTI is specialized in the design and realization of real time calculators for adaptive optics. The company has designed and produced several generations of calculators based on parallel and serial architecture. In the 90’s, the main blocking point was computing power and SHAKTI developed a custom computing generation based on the MOTOROLA RISC 88100 family and TEXAS INSTRUMENT’s TMS320C40. With the constant increase in computing power offered by CPUs, SHAKTI has focused its efforts on software architectures, their adaptability and their reusability.
