The Electronics and Instrumentation department was created in 2002 to respond to the growing demand for instrumentation in all the laboratory’s research groups.
In 2011 the department acquired its first 3D FDM printer and is updating the key tool of the department, 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 3D printers of FDM and Stereolithography technologies.
Three of its members are involved in the permanent training of the CNRS (IFSEM) and provide the following training sessions :
- LabVIEW basics
- LabVIEW improvement
The service is composed of two engineers and one engineering assistant.
- Jérémie Sanchez R&D engineer
- Sambath Saranga engineering assistant
- Yannic Simon R&D engineer, leader of the department
The department also takes on many interns (BUT or engineering school level).
