ArduinoSiPM as main payload to monitor the cosmic radiation in LEO.
ArduinoSiPM as main payload when placed in orbit, which allows to monitor the cosmic radiation in Low Earth Orbit by using a Silicon PhotoMultipliers (SiPM) coupled to a sparkling crystal.
SiPM (Silicon PhotoMultipliers) can be coupled with a scintillator crystal to build efficient, small and solid radiation detector . When particles are detected, it becomes a cosmic particles detector.
Developed by INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare), Rome, with "Arduino DUE" card, ArduSiPM uses a Hardware/Software board that has as its processor a SAM3XE microcontroller from Microchip Technology, with ARM® Cortex™ -M3 core, and a custom board that contains electronics that can monitor, set and capture sensor signals.
