Design of a Transient Recorder

Your tasks

The task is to develop a concept and a software prototype for a new transient recorder. The transient recorder is collecting data and stores it for further analysis. The recorder is implemented as a real-time C++ application executing on an embedded ARM Cortex-A53 CPU running RT Linux. The recorder application is configured by a tool written in the Python programming language. The transient recorder is later used to analyze dynamic behavior of a particle accelerator.
