Regulation of a plasma lamp
November 2018 - December 2020

Following several degree works, we have an onboard order based on a Soc Zinq. This control has a very precise pulse generator.
During the last TB, a feasibility study was conducted for the regulation of the lamp based on the brightness of the lamp via a photodiode. The result is promising, but during this work, it was not possible to implement a powerful A/D converter. This implies that it's not possible to detect the shape of the photodiode signal. The system remains partially usable.

The objective is to finalize the on-board order in order to demonstrate the performance of a platform based on a Soc-FPGA for the regulation of a complex application.
