  • Activity updates
  • DAQ/trigger 60% design review will be Thursday, 18 March, from 2pm to 5pm. Topics are still to be determined.
  • General discussion


Participants: B. Moffit, B. Blaikie, D. Bishop, J. Pan, M. Gericke, R. Michaels, W. Gu, P. King

  • Discussion of the DAQ/trigger 60% design review
    • Plan to have an update on the ADC design, integration mode requirements, and an overview talk. Michael, Bob, and Paul will have a follow up discussion to set the agenda
    • Michael proposes two aspects to the review: is the technical equipment sufficient to meet the requirements; and are the interfaces well defined.
  • Grounding discussion
    • Likely the ADC ground shield will be in common on each module
    • We look at Michael's signal/grounding diagram. In order to avoid ground-loops we should break the ground connection either just before the ADC input or just after the preamp
    • Discussion seems to converge on the idea that the ground of the ground of the preamp should be connected back to the PMT/HV ground, and the output ground from the preamp would *not* be connected to the twin-ax cable ground shield. The twin-ax ground shield would be connected to the integrator ground.
