Products and services

1) EDI Wireless Sensor Network TestBed

EDI TestBed is a 100+ node heterogeneous sensor network and wireless sensor network testbed (distributed around 7 floor building (inside & outside)) for validation and research in sensor network & wireless network protocols. Additionally, 50 mobile nodes are available on site.They can be used for example in-vehicle placement.


Testing of IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/p, IEEE 802.15.4 and other protocols (depends on WSN node); Fully reconfigurable routers; Remote reprogramming of the whole network; Energy measuring and remote debugging capabilities for the sensor nodes through a custom adapter; Control and management through either OMF or, alternatively, a simple webbased interface.

2) Super-stable impulse generator producing extremely low jitter

Impulse generator with extremely high stability and wide frequency range. It is implemented in two modifications: supporting NIM signal output and supporting LVTTL signal output (therefore it is possible to use them together with Event timers). Generator period stability in range up to 25000 ns is smaller than 1 ps (RMS). For wider ranges the reference signal is needed. Generator applications include measurement system testing (e.g. Event timers), calibration etc.


3) Universal Event timer producing extremely high measurement resolution

Together with Eventech Ltd the Event timer is developed capable to measure single pulse within 3 ps resolution (RMS) and maximum measuring rate up to 20 MHz. The various modifications of the timer are available (with increased measuring rate but lowered resolution). Event timers are used in SLR (Sattelite Laser Ranging) systems and have potential in LIDAR, 3-D scan, Laser Link communication systems.

4) Operating system MansOS and configuration tool Seals for embedded systems

IECS has expertise in development of operating systems and software for embedded systems. MansOS & Seals have been developed specially for low-power and computationally weak devices. The operating system can be modified depending on specific requirements and needs (including adaptation for Wireless Sensor Networks). Potential applications are data acquisition and gathering from environment, industrial process monitoring etc.

5) Shape sensing fabric

Large number of densely spaced sensors are embedded into fabric and allow to measure the shape of the fabric. Real-time animation of the shape model and its deformations can be obtained. Method utilizes low-power electronics and lightweight reconstruction algorithm (can be implemented on smartphone, tablet). Potential applications: Wearable devices – detailed  posture monitoring, movement monitoring, assistive rehabilitation. Assistive feedback tool for exercises (rehabilitation/sport), virtual trainer or  therapist. Impact are increased efficiency of rehabilitation, increased availability (example: sparsely populated areas), decreased time and money spent on rehabilitation. Flexible electronics - shape feedback of the devices with complex transformable shape. Robotics – position and shape feedback for robotic manipulators, deformation sensing layer.


6) UWB receiver producing high sensitivity

UWB (Ultra Wide Band) receiver producing sensitivity 15mkV (RMS). In comparison the Geozondas UWB receivers provide sensitivity about 75mkV (RMS) under the same conditions. It can be used for weak signal measurements in many industrial and science applications. As well it can be used for UWB radar applications (object localization, search of underground communications etc).


7) Indicator for hand shaking

Micro current indicator capable to measure weak physical fluctuations and shakes coming from objects. For example it measures human hand shakes when he is holding something. It could be used in sportsman training process (could be important in shooting trainings) etc.

8) Electromagnetic radiation measurer

Electromagnetic radiation measurer shows on a display the electromagnetic pollution existing around us in environment.

9) Infrastructure and Data Center

Teika campus data network and Data Center (DC) were upgraded in a frame work of Latvian Academic Network (LAT) implementation project (ERAF project Nr. 2DP/ sub activity "Information technology infrastructure and information systems improvement for scientific work" project "Development of Unified Academic Core Network of National Significance in Latvia"). Near to all Latvian academic and state scientific institutes are connected to LAT.

Teika campus merges state scientific institutes (Institutes) compactly located at Teika district in Riga. Among them: Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis (OSI), Institute of Electronics and Computer Science (IECS), Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry (IWC), Institute of Physical Energetics (IPE).

Each institute connected to campus optical loop with 10 Gbps channel (with possibility to extend to 20 Gbps) and Teika loop is connected to LAT main infrastructure with 10 Gbps channel also. Finally, LAT is a part of GEANT2 network and therefore connected to scientific and academic networks (NREN) of all European countries (connection speed 2.5 Gbps). Connection speed to main Internet provider is 10 Gbps.

Teika campus DC server room was built in accord with TIER II+ standard. A lot of new computational and network resources were purchased and put into operation, namely: computing resources, data storage, software for neural networks and organic synthesis processes simulation and other scientific researches. DC computing resources include several virtual machine servers and HPC (High Performance Computer) that is based on 12 IBM System x3650 nodes. Total HPC core count (CUDA cores) is 34560, total operational memory – 192 GB. Each HPC node has a network card with two 10 Gbps ports, connected to the 10 Gbps switch (HP 5900AF-48XG-4QSFP+), which provides high speed data exchange between HPC nodes. HPC is used in many projects where simulation of real processes required. New data storage (more than 100TB) allows placing video archives and backups of research results and programs. Among scientific program systems are: Solid Works, ArcGIS, Math Works and others.

DC resources can be used not only by scientific and academic institutions but also by commercial enterprises if they carry out scientific researches jointly with scientific institutes.
