Welcome to Computer & Informatics Group Print

The Computer & Informatics Group of VECC is originated from the integration of activities of the computational facility and computer control & beam diagnostics of cyclotrons. The main activities of the C & I Group is to provide various IT-services, application development and R & D works as per the requirement of the Centre.

The service related activities include facility and infrastructure development and maintenance of high-end computing services, networking infrastructure, database services for office automation, mail services, cloud services etc. The group is also engaged in implementation of IT Security Infrastructure. The group undertakes the responsibility of the voice communication services at the VECC main campus and other campuses.

The major developmental activities include design, development of various hardware and software of data acquisition systems for nuclear physics experiments using cyclotrons. Development of FPGA based hardware and multi-threaded application programs on different platforms to read, analyze and archive data from CAMAC and VME readout systems are parts of this activity.The other major responsibility of the group is to develop supervisory control system for various subsystems of Room Temperature Cyclotron and Superconducting Cyclotron; beam diagnostics, beam phase measurement and magnetic field mapping systems using modern state-of-the art tools and techniques.

The various other developmental activities include development of MIS applications, open source based application for IT infrastructure & security, mixed signal ASIC for nuclear physics, development of radiation monitoring equipment, embedded system development using state-of-the art SOC, development of readout system for SiPM based Gamma imaging system, RFID-based authentication system for attendance, key management, personal information and library.  

The major research area focused till now are on image processing, applications of soft computing, localization of mobile Robots, medical expert system, modelling and verification of control system, fault tolerant firmware for FPGA and dynamic partial reconfiguration.

The group also earned the credit of development, deployment and distribution of a Text to Sign Language conversion software to assist communication with physically challenged people – a contribution towards societal application of computing.
