Selected as the next NASA Medium Class Explorer mission, SPHEREx, the Spectro-Photometer for the History of the Universe, Epoch of Reionization, and Ices Explorer is planned for launch in early 2025. SPHEREx calibration data products include detector spectral response, non-linearity, persistence, and telescope focus error measurements. To produce these calibration products, we have developed a dedicated data acquisition and instrument control system, SPHERExLabTools (SLT). SLT implements driver… 



SPHEREx: NASA's near-infrared spectrophotometric all-sky survey
