The ANTARES collaboration is building a deep sea neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean Sea. This detector will cover a sensitive area of typically 0:1 km 2 and will be equipped with about 1000 optical modules. Each of these optical modules consists of a large area photomultiplier and its associated electronics housed in a pressure resistant glass sphere.(More)
—In this paper, we describe our experience in designing real-time hardware/software systems for data acquisition and analysis applications in particle physics, which are based on a system-on-chip (SoC) approach. Modern field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices with embedded reduced instruction set computing (RISC) processor cores, high-speed low voltage(More)
VOT productions were compared for 5 Broca's aphasics and 5 Wernicke's aphasics to those for a group of 5 normal subjects of similar age. Phonetic errors were produced by both types of aphasic patients, but not by normal controls. Although previous studies have found significantly more phonetic errors in VOT production for Broca's aphasics, this study did(More)
The ANTARES neutrino telescope, to be immersed depth in the Mediterranean Sea, will consist of a three-dimensional matrix of 900 large area photomultiplier tubes housed in pressure-resistant glass spheres. The selection of the optimal photomultiplier was a critical step for the project and required an intensive phase of tests and developments carried out in(More)
The level 2 trigger on charged particles (L2C) of the NA48 experiment features powerful capabilities for implementing complex triggering algorithms in real-time software. These algorithms may involve track reconstruction, vertex, invariant mass or transverse momentum computation, etc. After a brief outline of the L2C architecture, this paper describes the(More)
