The control software framework called EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System) provides an architecture for control system software to be constructed as a scalable, distributed database of control components. It is based on industry standards at all levels and includes an extensive set of tools and clients that are portable across all major architectures (including Unix, Linux and Windows operating systems). EPICS software has been used on many major high-energy physics facilities as well as on large astronomical telescopes.
The EPICS group at INFN-LNL, waiting the landing of enough large project to use EPICS, is mainly devoted to R&D and prototyping small applications actually in use from an experimental group.
