Raffaella Radogna

Saad Shaikh

  • Finished reading and giving feedback on Laurent's thesis.
  • Tested He and C fitting using GSI DDDs as reference.
    • Can't say much about quality of fitting and Bragg curve reconstruction as GSI data uses a ripple filter and has different energy steps to HIT. Need to compare with actual HIT FLUKA simulation.
  • Finished Udemy online course on FPGA programming.
    • Some useful introductory exercises using basic I/O on Zybo board beyond "Hello World" Blinky exercise.
    • Will move onto Xilinx University Programme material to continue training.
  • Front-end boards have been made by CosyLab!
    • Will analyse datasheet for TI DDC232 to understand I/O signals and present report on timeline for operation.
  • Need to get serial interface working to send commands from computer to FPGA.
    • Have downloaded Tera Term terminal emulator, will find example code to get it working.
    • Need to buy USB-UART converter expansion module for Zybo Z7 to communicate with FPGA without having to go through on-board processor.
  • Will start going through example Verilog code for DDC264EVM FPGA serial interface.
