Meeting recording on [2]

Participants: R. Michaels, P. King, H. Liu, J. Fast, R. Radloff, D. Armstrong

  • Activity updates
    • Hanjie reports that Chandan had started working with the GEM test stand at UMass
    • I'm still working on getting orders put through, currently working on the VME CPUs
    • We still need to figure out where the MPDs need to be located, and what kind of shielding they need to be in.
  • Restarting the counting mode daq design document
    • I will pull the trigger concept discussions into the daq design document
  • General discussion
    • For next meeting, Hanjie will present a summary of what she's learned about working with the VTP
    • Discussion of how we want to readout the FADCs
      • Probably we want to readout the full waveform of the pulse ("raw mode"?) initially
      • Later we might use the pulse integral mode, but that's mostly used to keep deadtime low, and that's not a big concern for the counting mode, as we can fairly easily just turn the current down or prescale the triggers
