Medical LINAC Project Pakistan (MLPP)

  • MLPP Image_big

At the site of the Pakistan Institute of Nuclear Science & Technology (PINSTECH), we are developing MLPP, a 6 MeV Medical Linear Accelerator for treatment of cancer patients. The Electronics and Controls group is involved in design and development of the Accelerator Control System (ACS), whose main features are:

  • EPICS is used as the Middle Layer software framework.
  • CS-Studio is used as the Presentation Layer GUI software.
  • EPICS Input Output Controllers (IOCs) acquire the data from front-end devices and display on the GUI/HMI of CS-Studio via Channel Access Protocol.

We are at an early stage of developing the Accelerator Control System, so any suggestions and collaborations will be highly appreciated.
