ZedBoard TANGO Control System Gateway

this is a proof of concept : accessing a minimal zynq design from TANGO distributed control system

(XUP OpenHardware 2015 Contest).

 

youtube video ; paper here 

Download a ready to launch TangoBox here tango.vdi.zip (64 bit OS / VirtualBox required, 2.4GB)

flash zedboard qspi memory with BOOT.bin

 

see www.tango-control.org for more info on TANGO

 

Tango is a free, open source, distributed, scalable, efficient SCADA framework : a set of tools and API to monitor industrial appliance of any kinds...
Tango control system was elaborated at the ESRF, a large synchrotron radiation facility in Grenoble, France. The ESRF is a large research laboratory (1500 engineers, researchers, ), a kind of giant microscope to explore organic molecules or others and that uses X rays of high energy (6 GeV) issued from an 850 meters circumference accelerator in more than 40 beams lines operating simultaneously.

Tango Control System is a 100 man/years middleware, which aims at the monitoring 24/7 of more than 200 000 sensors & actuators in the facility. It features among other usage : logging, events driven communication, seamless integration to NI Labview, Matlab, Igor scientific toolboxes or OPC-UA plc, EPICS bus, ...

 

The SKA Telescope (square kilometre array telescope in southAfrica/Australia) will use TANGO.

But Tango can also fit in a raspberry pi or in a zynq SoC !

 

this is essentially an openembedded custom built.

 

thank you for reading
