Meeting recording on [1]

Participants: Bryan Moffit, Jim Fast, David Armstrong, Robert Michaels, Chandan Ghosh, Kevin Ward, Paul King

  • Paul is getting his purchase orders submitted through OU for the electronics needed for the test stands.
    • One of the VXS crates he's ordering will be made available to UMass-Amhurst for the GEM readout test stand
    • They'll also need a VTP module Late note: Paul has reached out to Chris about getting the VTP and other JLab modules.
  • Chandan is starting to order in the other components for the GEM test stand; he has not ordered the HDMI cables yet. He has communicated with the UVa group about the type of HDMI cable they are using.
    • David asks if there might be a way to look at the signal shaping through the HDMI cable. Discussion doesn't come up with a clear idea, but David will give it some thought.
  • David asks about the plans for counting mode analysis tools.
    • We should get the low-level software tools that SBS uses for DAQ system tests.
    • For the full analysis, we might look at the SBS-offline as a starting point. SBS-offline is based on the Hall A Podd analysis framework
    • Are there pieces of this that we could start to get students involved with already?
  • Chandan mentions that the alignment group will be developing lists of plots/software that would be needed during early commissioning
  • Chandan also mentions that there will be four radial scanners instead of three, and that they would need to be in both integrating and counting mode.
