This research activity is focused on conceiving new electronic measurement methods and on designing the related digital electronic instrumentation for signal processing based on configurable computing resources, especially digital configurable devices (i.e. microcontrollers, microprocessors, DSP and FPGA devices). The activity mainly deals with the design, prototypation and engineering of hardware, firmware and software architectures for high performance and real-time digital processing of signals and data.
The main application fields range from the management of energy storage and flow, to processing events originated by radiation detectors in nuclear physics and medicine, to handling video sources and conditioning data streams, to digital control architectures and avionic setups. These activities are carried out in the frame of collaborations with scientific institutions supported by research contracts or within industrial partnerships. More than one hundred publications on international journals or congress proceedings have been published up to now.
