    National (AFRA) Training Course on Programmable System on Chip using Xilinx Zynq-7000 Module

    Khartoum, Sudan 13 - 17 November 2016

    Organizers by

    The Instrumentation Centre of the Sudan Atomic Energy Commission (SAEC) in collaboration

    with the

    International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

    Purpose of the course:Traditional FPGA devices has been utilized in many nuclear and related instruments for the past few decades, allowing multiple and parallel processing of signals from radiation detectors and other sensors. These features make instruments more compact by reducing number of required processors and minimising complexity of analog electronics for signal processing. In the last few years a new Programmable System on Chip emerged, such as Xilinx Zynq-7000 which integrates the software programmability of powerful ARM Cortex-A9 processor with the hardware programmability of a traditional FPGA which further simplifies instrument design. In this training course we aim to familiarise participants with underlying software design tools and hardware platforms based on the Zynq-7000 family of chips through tutorials and project examples in the field of nuclear and related applications. The training will contribute to considerably increase capacity of the institutes for refurbishing/developing modern instruments, therefore increasing their self-reliance and income generation.
