Abstract

We report on the architecture of the System-on-Module (SoM) developed by our group for miniPET-II, the second version of our small animal PET scanner. The paper describes the hardware and software implementation details of the SoM we realized inside the miniPET-II detector module, the embedded Linux operation system, and the the initial results of bandwidth test measurements on the assembled SoM. Detailed description is given on the interfacing of the updated miniPET IP Core to the SoM, on the efficient data transfer method that implements device-to-device DMA transfer, and on the usage of User Datagram Protocol (UDP/IP) for high speed data transfer.
