IPE 11-18 Bachelor and Master Theses in Physics/Electrical Engineering: Developing an FPGA based SoC design for real-time data processing and control

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) - KIT - Helmholtz Association

Karlsruhe, Germany

Work group:

Institute for Data Processing and Electronics (IPE)


Area of research:

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

IPE has developed a universal data acquisition platform for a broad range of applications ranging from photon-science, electron beam diagnostics to high-energy physics experiments. In the next generation of this system we aim realize a data throughput of up to 240 Gb/s and above. Key in our concept are the latest FPGA family combined with emerging optical data-links. In this thesis the latest Xilinx Zynq System-on-Chip (SoC), which combines an FPGA and an ARM processor in one chip should be integrated in our platform.

Study the Xilinx Zynq platform and its development toolsSetup of the Linux environment for the embedded ARM processorDevelopment of a framework to exchange data between ARM and FPGAEstablish a workflow to implement new control algorithms running on FPGA and ARM


Knowledge in C and Verilog/VHDL (basic)Embedded and hardware programming (better but not required)Previous experience with developing for a Xilinx Zynq SoC (better but not required)

Contract duration

according to the study regulations
