MXS

This project in the 2010 Olin-NASA summer program is to create a controller for a Modulated X-Ray Source (MXS).

Our Statement of Work

To design and implement a Mac-based controller and housekeeping measurement system for a modulated x-ray source.
The controller should be capable of outputting two user-specified high voltages (0-3kV and 0-10kV) to the nearest 50-100 V, as well as a signal necessary to achieve a desired relative flux output from a UV LED.
The housekeeping measurement system will constantly display relevant measurements --the current, voltage, and temperature of the LED as well as the current and voltage input to the two DC-DC converters--to the user.
