The "electronics" service takes on the research & development, the implementation of projects in the areas of digital or analogue electronics for ground-based or space-based instrumentation. For instance :

  • Designing and fine tuning actuators and sensors for ELT instruments, from control electronics to the first layers of software control.
  • FPGA developments for real-time signal processing with applications to space-based radar tomography or to new detectors developed by industrial partners.

Most of these projects are carried out within international consortia. The service also assists projects in spectroscopy and microscopy carried out at LiPhy.
