Recently two of our colleagues have defended their thesis based on research involving FPGAs.
The first one: “Particle track recognition on FPGA devices”, by Emilia Pieczonka and
The second one: “Particle track reconstruction on FPGA devices” by Kuba Cierlik
They both are from Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering from University of Science and Technology.
We have just received a pack of 25 licenses for SDSoC Software from Xilinx!
It gives us a great chance to explore high-end technology and getting the most out of our hardware. Especially when a powerful Zynq Z706 board is arriving soon to our hardware library!
Our system for data acquisition from tracking detectors, based on TRBv3 platform has been presented at IEEE Real Time Conference 2016 in Padova.
It is worth to mention that the TRBv3 platform itself found its place on several other contributions at that conference!
More hardware to explore! We have been just granted DE1-SoC and DE5 development kits from ALTERA by their university program.
- DE1-SoC is a Cyclone V based paltform:
- DE5 is an advanced Stratix V platform:
Great HDL development IDE SIGASI has just provided a couple of licenses for our group. Their advanced, Eclipse-based software is a significant support in the logic development mostly thanks to real-time syntax check and code decomposition that provides auto-completition, something so much appreciated when writing in VHDL 😉
Great news! We have received additional founding from the faculty in the program DSC2016.
It is a clear sign that our effort in propagating FPGA technology as an important branch in Computer Science and Experimental Physics related projects has been noticed and appreciated.
Here’s what we’ll buy in the near future:
- Advanced Zynq-based development kit ZC706
- Two basic, Artix-based development kits Arty
Both journals are now available for you to check out in selected seminar rooms. Latest releases will keep coming in.
According to the publisher:
Xcell Journal offers a wealth of practical engineering knowledge and in-depth coverage of the latest applications and technologies.
Xcell Software Journal offers a wealth of practical knowledge and in-depth coverage of the latest applications and methods for software and system design.
Take a look and enjoy!
I’m glad to announce that we have managed to acquire a generous donation for Xilinx Inc.
The entire package contains:
- 2x ZedBoard development kit
- 25x Vivado HLx: System Edition license
Looking forward further fruitful cooperation!
