Our processing rack is growing up. Today we have installed Virtex Ultrascale based data concentrators inside the rack and connected to the DAQ server. Integrated processing, real time processing and a screen will give an instant overview of the measurement.
Do not be fooled by the photo, there are wheels under the rack.
Great news! We have just received the powerful ZynqMPSOC powered board.
The module will replace in the future the current JPET Controller and enable much more advanced real-time processing.
Enhanced image reconstruction, including 3D and TOF functionalities has been successfully implemented entirely in the FPGA!
In programmable logic, we are finding LOR candidates and reconstruct the annihilation point coordinates. Then, only X, Y, Z values are being sent from the JPET Controller to the server that produces 3D canvas with the scanner visualization.
You can find a video showing it in action under [this] link.
We have just received brand new VCU108 Evaluation Boards with Xilinx Virtex Ultrascale XCVU095. Those powerful platforms will be used in the readout of silicon photomultipliers layer for JPET tomograph.
