  • Activity updates
    • Status of 16-ch. integrator firmware development
  • General discussion

Open Issues to be followed up later

  1. Discussions with M. Pitt & J. Musson to understand the beam monitor signals we'll be getting
  2. Draft timing diagram: DocDB 790
  3. Michael, Bob, Brynne, and Paul should put together a list of the integrator running modes we would like to have available


Participants: P. King, C. Cuevas, W. Gu, M. Gericke, J. Pan, R. Michaels, B. Blaikie, J. Fast

  • Update on the integrator. Both Daryl and Bryerton are out on vacation through the end of the year. Daryl sent the following set of updates:
    • The problem with the XU1 being fried was related to a power-up sequencing error. This was fixed by removing a part that is not essential to the module operation
    • The two modules at TRIUMF have been modified to correct other minor problems
    • Both ADC boards have been powered up through the POE and external power connections successfully
    • Both ADC boards are booting correctly and are ready for firmware development
    • Not sure if Michael wants to do their own modifications or send them to TRIUMF
    • It's unlikely that Bryerton will make any significant progress on the firmware until next year
  • Other discussion
    • Michael will probably send the other three boards to TRIUMF for the modifications
    • Discussion of the test stand development
      • I have two crates set up at OU and am waiting for the CPUs (expected ~15 DEC). I have a scaler module and digital gate generator to begin with.
      • Bob talks about the JLab test stand where we have the FADC and VETROC for event mode testing; this will also be shared for Compton DAQ testing
    • I need to get the list of anticipated module counts to Chris; we should then see if we can start to order components, etc.
