PICMG is a consortium of companies who collaboratively develop open specifications for high performance telecommunications and industrial computing applications. The members of the consortium have a long history of developing leading edge products for these industries. It is responsible for series of specifications that include CompactPCI®, AdvancedTCA®, AdvancedMC™, CompactPCI Express™, COM Express™ and SHB Express™.
EFDA - European Fusion Development Agreement
The European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA) is an agreement between European fusion research institutions and the European Commission to strengthen their coordination and collaboration, and to participate in collective activities. Its activities include coordination of physics and technology in EU laboratories, the exploitation of the world's largest fusion experiment, the Joint European Torus (JET) in the UK, training and career development in fusion and EU contributions to international collaborations. IPFN/IST is the leading institution of the Association EURATOM-IST. Among other activities has strongly contributed to EFDA efforts by providing Control and Data Acquisiton solutions for several EU fusion devices.
JET, the Joint European Torus, is situated at the Culham Science Centre, Oxfordshire, UK. It is collectively used by EURATOM Associations from more than 20 European countries. The JET device is currently the world's largest Tokamak. The JET facilities include plasma heating systems capable of delivering up to 30 megawatts of power, an Active Gas Handling System and a beryllium handling Facility providing JET with a unique Tritium and Beryllium capability, respectively. Over the next few years JET's technical capabilities will be significantly enhanced in order to optimally support ITER's final detail design and in preparation for exploiting ITER. IPFN has been contributing to several JET enhancements with Control and Data Acquisition solutions.
ITER, currently under construction in the South of France, aims to demonstrate that fusion is an energy source for the future. IPFN contributes to ITER CODAC (COntrol Data Access and Communication) activities.
