The National Science Centre has announced the results of the Miniatura 5. The competition aims to financially support scientific activities to prepare a future research project for submission to NCN, other national or international competitions. Among the prize-winners was Dr. Robert Frankowski, who received funding to carry out a scientific activity entitled Preliminary studies of the properties of MPSoC structures on the possibility of implementation of a high-resolution TDC converter.
The project aims to carry out a pilot study to provide information on the properties of Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC) structures, which is essential from the point of view of precise time-interval measuring metrology. The conducted pilot studies will allow new knowledge on the potential implementation of precision TDC transducers with sub-picosecond resolution in these structures, mainly related to signal propagation, interpretation, and influence of external and noise factors on its operation. The conclusions will be based on experimental investigations of the mechanism of phase fluctuation describing the module of multi-tapped discrete delay lines (WDLO) with register.
To implement the above scientific activity, Dr. Robert Frankowski received 28 930 PLN.
