WEB Frontend builder for Slow Control – OPEN

The project is about designing and implementing a configurable frontend interface for Slow Control System for DJPET

Slow Control System allows to control and monitor parameters of the electronics included in the data acquisition system of the DJPET scanner.

The user interface should give a possibility to display values under various forms (e.g.: graphs, raw values etc.) refreshed at time intervals as well as collect input from the user. As the is dynamically developed, the GUI should be easily adjustable by inserting or removing new fields.

Projekt polega na zaprojektowaniu i zaimplementowaniu interfejsu graficznego dla systemu kontrolno/sterującego dla skanera DJPET

System kontrolno/sterujący pozwala na ustawianie i monitorowanie parametrów elektroniki wchodzącej w skład systemu akwizycji danych.

Interfejs użytkownika powinien dawać możliwość prezentowania odczytywanych wartości w różnych formach (grafy, surowe wartości, itp.) odświeżanych w zadanej częstotliwości oraz pozwalać użytkownikowi ustawiać parametry odczytu. Ponieważ system jest dynamicznie rozwijany, GUI powinno mieć możliwość łatwego dodawania  i usuwania nowych pól.

Slow Control System for DJPET DAQ – TAKEN

The project is about designing and implementing a Slow Control System for DJPET

Slow Control System allows to control and monitor parameters of the electronics included in the data acquisition system of the DJPET scanner.

The system is based on the AXI components, which are mapped to the master device memory. In our case the master is the Linux on ARM embedded in the Zynq MPSoC. The project consists of developing software that will be able to read and write to any AXI component in the system as well as perform fundamental tasks like remote rebooting, flashing etc.

System kontrolno/sterujący pozwala na ustawianie i monitorowanie parametrów elektroniki wchodzącej w skład systemu akwizycji danych.

System akwizycji bazuje na komponentach AXI, które są mapowane w pamięci głównego układu. W naszym przypadku, tym głównym układem jest system Linux działający na procesorze ARM wbudowanym w układ Zynq MPSoC. Projekt polega na rozwinięciu oprogramowania pozwalającego czytac i pisać po rejestrach każdego komponentu AXI oraz przeprowadzać podstawowe operacje takie jak restartowanie układów czy programowanie pamięci flash.
