The electronic instrumentation department was created in 2002 to respond to the growing demand for instrumentation needs of the laboratory’s research groups.
In 2011 the department acquired its first 3D FDM printer and is updating the department’s key tool, the microcontroller, by moving towards the Arm Mbed family.
This service aims to find non-commercial technical solutions to problems posed by researchers when designing experimental devices.
Its function is to be a reference and a source of advice in the fields of instrumentation, electronics, industrial computing and 3D design.
It ensures the maintenance of the experimental devices it has developed as well as a technological watch.
It works in close collaboration with the researchers as well as with the various departments of the laboratory.
For its activities, the department relies mainly on microcontroller programming, software interfacing with LabVIEW, 3D design with SolidWorks and additive manufacturing with FDM and stereolithography 3D printers.
Three of its members are involved in the permanent training of the CNRS (IFSEM) and provide the following training :
- LabVIEW basics
- LabVIEW advanced
The service is composed of three engineers and one engineering assistant.
- Vincent Klein R&D engineer, leader of the department
- Jérémie Sanchez R&D engineer
- Sambath Saranga engineering assistant
- Yannic Simon R&D engineer
The department also takes on many interns (BUT or engineering school level).
