Research infrastructures

The TagusLIP Laboratory is a LIP research infrastructure installed in 2004 at the Lisbon Science and Technology Park (Taguspark).

The campus is home to a University (IST), several research centres, as well as a large spectrum of startups and PMEs. TagusLIP was conceived as a generic infrastructure for the development of radiation detectors with emphasis on nuclear medicine imaging technologies opened to external entities. The TagusLIP laboratory is equipped with the necessary instrumentation for R&D on radiation detectors and associated electronics, and data acquisition, including electronics lab equipment, computing and networking systems.

The laboratory offers software tools for developing analog and digital electronic integrated circuits (Cadence), for firmware development (Xilinx and Altera), and for the design of printed circuit boards (Altium). The TagusLIP has a computing and data storage infrastructure, suitable to software projects in various areas, such as data acquisition, equipment control, data analysis and image processing. The TagusLIP is licensed for the use of radiation sources needed to develop and test new instruments in nuclear medicine.

The groups using the laboratory hold large experience in the development, commissioning and operation of large electronics and data acquisition systems in particle physics experiments and medical instrumentation, particularly in the design and implementation of ASICs for SiPM readout. The PETsysstart-up company has recently been using the TagusLIP infrastructure for the development and validation of Time-of-Flight PET technology. The TOFPET ASIC series is being developed that range from PET systems to the CMS experiment.
