Gianluca Chiozzi, (Head of Control and Instrumentation Department, ESO):

"We have been working with Cosylab since many years, always to our complete satisfaction. Cosylab has given an essential contribution to both of the design and the implementation of the ACS platform and they are still for us a reliable resource for development and maintenance. A Cosylab engineer has always proved that they are very competent, helpful and reliable, delivering consistently according to plans and responding promptly to requests for support. In many cases we have profited from Cosylab experience and knowledge on edge technologies to steer our architectural and technical choices for ACS and the ALMA project. We rely on them not only for long term development outsourcing, but also to cope with unexpected load peaks."

 Karen White, (Jefferson Lab):

"Cosylab provided a lot and of good quality in a short period of time. I hope that this praise will not make you want to charge more."

 Marcus Schwickert, (GSI):

"Cosylab has delivered a turn-key solution that solves all our needs for motion control. I was impressed at how fast Cosylab was able to produce high quality results."

Hamid Shoaee, (SLAC):

"all your clients are very satisfied with the quality of your work, your responsiveness and your price."

Volker R. Schaa, (GSI):

"In total, we all like the widgets you created for this application very much and were very impressed by your resourcefulness. Our compliments!"

Nigel Boulding, (FMB Oxford - formerly Oxford Danfysik):

"FMB Oxford has worked with Cosylab for the past 4 years to deliver turnkey solutions for complete beamlines and systems to synchrotron customers around the world. Cosylab were an obvious choice, as a leading commercial supplier of EPICS programming, to complement our comprehensive range of synchrotron products. In Cosylab we have found a flexible and capable organization with staff capable of extending their contribution beyond the EPICS interface into hardware selection and optimization. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership in future years."

Ron Chestnut, (SLAC):

"We have implemented a GPIB solution using the Cosylab microIOC at SLAC. The PEP-II storage ring currents here at SLAC are read out via Keithley meters and GPIB. Our previous solution had exhibited "hangs" which required local power cycling of the Keithley meters and reboots of the controlling IOC. Cosylab added two switchable AC power outlets to their microIOC supporting GPIB, allowing logic in the microIOC to power-cycle each meter individually. Cosylab personnel support our engineer closely through the commissioning."

Kuotung Hsu (NSRRC):

"Two experts from CosyLab given an excellent EPICS course on-site. The EPICS course accompany with exercises are comprehensive, all of attendees of the course get insight of EPICS toolkits quickly. After the training courses, both experts help our software peoples to integrate an prototype 1 m elliptical polarizing undulator with Ethernet based motion controller as one of a major exercise. All efforts are done within a couple of days."

 Alan Jackson (Technical Director, ASP):

"COSYLAB supplied the booster control system as well as controls for storage ring magnet power supply, apple2 undulator and protein crystallography and powder diffraction beamlines to the Australian Synchrotron. I confirm that the Synchrotron Control teams were able to work collaboratively with COSYLAB staff to arrive at a good solution which met all requirements. The systems were delivered on time to their contractors and that the software worked "straight out of the box."

Scott Higgins, (Accelerator OPS, R&D, Jefferson Lab):

Cosylab is a great organization to collaborate with: helpful, accessible, quick turn around on bug fixes, basically excellent customer service.“
