2018 FPGA Workshop

CVT hosted the first workshop on “Real-time Digital Radiation Measurements in Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA)”. The workshop introduced Hardware Description Language (VDHL) in the Xilinx ISE Project Navigator (14.7) environment. Through a series of practical examples, attendees learned how to simulate, synthesize, and implement FPGA program modules for radiation measurement applications, such pulse-shape discrimination and multi-channel analysis. During the last day, participants programmed and tested FPGA-based digital processing systems for radiation detection and spectroscopy.
