HARP (HArdware Research Platform) is a family of devices created and developed by the Champalimaud Foundation Hardware Platform since 2017 that provides an efficient, intuitive and friendly way of use within an high-performance environment of tools. Since all HARP devices are synchronized, several devices can be used in the same setup.
Most important features:
- Hardware synchronization
- Growing family of devices
- Share the same communication protocol and architecture
- Each device solves a specific problem
- Graphical tools to configure each device
- Low size data files from experiments
- Bonsai, Matlab, LabVIEW, and Python compatibility
The interface with the devices are made trough Bonsai, a powerful language to run experiments, where the HARP devices are natively implemented.
The Clock Synchronizer distributes the timestamp.
Deviation between devices of ± 44 µs.
Graphical applications to configure the devices.
Online updates of applications and devices firmware.
Creates small data files.
Eliminates unnecessary processing.
