Digital Foucault tester for quantitative estimate the wave form of aspheric surfaces is based on the high precision knife position determination and the image data processing methods. In this paper, we report a set of digital Foucault tester for the measurement of parabolic surface. The movement of the knife-edge is controlled by PC, and the shadow patterns are captured by a CCD in real time and then are fed back to the computer. A new kind of data processing method, which has the advantage of simple arithmetic and high precision, is given in the paper. The method offers a reliable base for Digital Foucault tester.
