ALBA Electrometer V2 (colab. with MaxIV). This could be an alternative to the Elettra electrometer. It does much more.
price: 1100E a box. O. Matilla (ALBA electronics leader) says if we are interested we can borrow one box from them.
ESP32: ALBA uses it monitor temperature using Wifi.
We could use the same chip to do serial to wifi bridge.
MicroTCA 4 is being used a lot (DESY, ELI, SLAC, ...) (next successor of VME and cPCI)
[Pandabox] (https://www.ohwr.org/projects/pandabox/wiki/wiki) project between SOLEIL & DIAMOND. It provides a common encoder processing platform based on Zynq 7030 and supporting multiple encoder standards (incremental, SSI, BISS...). It will deliver synchronous triggering and data capture capabilities.
Commercial producer: Quantum Detectors (http://quantumdetectors.com/pandabox)
The platform is build around a PicoZed board from Avnet integrated in a 19" rack.
