Electrical Team

The electrical team is responsible for developing all the circuit boards and managing the disturbance originating from the power, the heat and the electromagnetic field. The most evident challenge for the team is not only to fit the numerous electrical components in a restricted area but also to allow room for maintenance.
Moreover, that all of our boards are designed, soldered and tested in our laboratory. Engineering our own components is part of the S.O.N.I.A culture.

To simplify cable management, communication and power distribution, the team built the electrical platform around a backplane. This enables us to have all custom boards connected on one plane. Microcontrollers and FPGA are programmed by the members to process and interact with the sensors.
