The analogical “bufferized” acquisition board MIVA, embedded in the shared instrumentation interface.
Performance needs combined with growing complexity of physics experiments require adaptation and technical innovations. DAPNIA is involved in the development of control/command systems that ensure a high level of reliability, availability and flexibility, including advanced communication between heterogeneous systems with an ergonomic interface for users.
Magnets and accelerators require advanced technologies with a strong involvement of the DAPNIA as far as instrumentation is concerned.
The high level of expertise and experience acquired working on projects of different size using diverse technical means, allows creating tools that will be reusable with the view of performance and cost.
These needs and ability lead DAPNIA to invest for cutting-edge developments in the fields of electronics, PLCs, adaptative monitoring software and in new technologies validations.
