Here you can find a list of Infotronics projects carried out at the HES-SO Valais Wallis
The CubeSatCom project develops the digital baseband electronics for satellite communication. It consists of 2 parts:
- channel coding and decoding, in order to overcome transmission errors
- data modulation and demodulation for radio transmission
The Dormouse project consists in connecting multiple switching power supplies to a single master via an optical Ethernet link.
EDA is a collection of libraries, IPs and template designs maintained and used at HES-SO Valais Wallis.
Internal Ra&D Project for a more unified "Base Measurement Instrumentation"
Defining the synchronisation algorithm of a slave clock to a master clock with the IEEE Std 1588 - Precision Time Protocol protocol.
Project in collaboration with HEIG-VD
Graphical user interface (GUI) for GRLIB-AMBA
Automatically translate mathematical formulas to VHLD code, inclusive optimisation and testbench in SystemVerilog.
An intelligent Microphone to record group conversations
An Ethernet Transceiver IP for FPGA
HES-SO//Vs FPGA Development Board
This is a VHDL IP core which allows to connect a FPGA to PC over USB with help of a Cypress USB driver chip
The board features an FPGA connected to 5 Edison modules for data processing. It is intended to allow high processing power combined to low power consumption.
Envirobot is an ambitious high end project in the nano-tera program. Its major aim is to develop and construct a demonstrator robot platform (the Envirobot) that samples and measures a set of relevant water quality parameters in surface water bodies by the incorporation of optical, physical, chemical and biological sensors. The Envirobot platform will be based on existing segmented anguilliform Amphibots, but with important adaptations in terms of energy use and efficiency, sensory decision programming, and communication possibilities. The Envirobot is invented to perform autonomous surveying or autonavigation. In autonomous surveying the robot will sample and analyze water bodies according to a preset path and defined number of waypoints.
Industrial Grade Material Analysis and Applications: an internal research project to analyze different parameters (speed, resolution, sensitivity) of current Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) equipment, tools and methodologies to find their limits and propose ways to increase them.
Ubiquitous Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope: a cheap and miniturised SLO based on MEMS scanning mirrors
