IPE 18-20 Bachelor- or Masterthesis: Development of an FPGA-based SoC design for real-time data processing and control

Eintrag vom 09.10.2020
Angebotsnr. IPE 18-20
Stelle ist zu besetzen ab: offen/nach Absprache


IPE has developed a universal data acquisition platform for a broad range of applications ranging from photon-science, and electron beam diagnostics to high-energy physics experiments. The next generation of this platform should reach a data throughput of 240 Gb/s and above. Key components of our concept are the latest FPGA family combined with fast optical data-links. In this thesis you will use the latest Xilinx Zynq System-on-Chip (SoC), which combines an FPGA and an ARM processor in one chip and integrate it in our DAQ platform.
