Terrestrial fusion power is a low carbon alternative to conventional power sources with reduced waste and proliferation concerns relative to fission power.
The complexity of fusion research devices means that many high performance diagnostics are necessary to investigate the underlying physics of the environment.
Field Programmable Gate Array technology provides a powerful and flexible option when designing bespoke instrumentation.
