Status DAQ for cosmic-ray test in RAL Contents Status Setup for cosmic-ray test bench Schedule Hideyuki Sakamoto MICE Phone meeting 12th July 2007 Scheme for DAQ DATE (Data Acquisition and Test Environment) framework. Need to build modified readout program for MICE in DATE. Other part (e.g. data format, eventBuilding) will use default one. Readout program is prepared for each modules. VLSB module made by FNAL TDC/ADC module made by CAEN Sub-framework (readout+initializing) is under preparing by James. Status New RHB is coming today, taking data with test charge injection/cosmic-ray. Threshold: 100,120,160,200,240 Bias ON & Heater ON Try heater current to be low by heating cryostat with OXFORD temperature controller. Started working on DATE from last week. Yesterday, once success to starting readout program in DATE. fail at 2nd try Should be finished in next week at RAL. Readout code is under implementing. Sub-framework is almost done? Command lists are replaced from AFEII to AFEIIt. Can be tested at stand alone. Linux driver for SBS(bit3) dataBLIZZARD to test in Imperial. In next week, test will also be done in RAL.. (using CAEN) Threshold 100 It seems LHB RHB compared with previous version for Excel sheet. Threshold 120 Increase noise Threshold 160 Increase noise Threshold 200 Decrease noise Threshold 240 Decrease/Same? noise OLD version (afeIIt_vlsb_daq_810.c.xls) Previous RHB Bias ON threshold 160 w/o charge injection test_pulse_033_old-excel_thre160_heater_on_bias_on OLD version (afeIIt_vlsb_daq_810.c.xls) Previous RHB Bias ON threshold 200 w/o charge injection test_pulse_032_old-excel_thre200_heater_on_bias_on OLD version (afeIIt_vlsb_daq_810.c.xls) Previous RHB Bias ON threshold 240 w/o charge injection test_pulse_031_old-excel_thre240_heater_on_bias_on Comment for todays result Noise rate seems to be reproduced as previous RHB. Noise rate seems to be reversed at threshold 160 by eye. This may not true. For treatment of heater current, it is better to compare with the same RHB, so taking data with default setting with this new RHB. Possible reason for RHB noise Remember that we do not see ANY noise with test charge injection data. Lets check this fact by taking data as changing triggering rate. This will be done by LED pulse injection. If we take data with high rate, we cannot not see any noise as LED data. It not, there is problem at the setting of self trigger mode. Our goal is to identify/remove the noise. If heater current is the reason, then we should see any changeable results from it. We should check it taking by data with the default setting as previous. This is copy from ALICE web-page.

Testing code for VLSB module in Imeprial. Waiting for driver for SBS(Bit3) dataBLIZZARD. Implement readout code for new firmware (ce). Next week (16th ~ 20th) Set up test bench at R12 in RAL with JSG/Mike/Nicholls/Craig/etc. Clone system for Geneva University Testing code for CAEN modules(V977, V1270, V1724) in RAL. To test VLSB modules in RAL, need more modules! Please send to RAL! Imperials VLSB will be in use for QA. The week after next (23rd ~ 27th) DAQ workshop (23,24,25) Finish to setup DAQ system (mainly to debug readout program, I think) R12 Here coming 2 cryostats & 1 compressor & 1 transformer & 8 AFE boards & 5 stations & 25 inter/external waveguides & 1 patch panel & 2 VME crates & 2 NIM crates & VME/NIM modules & 2 DAQ PCs & other stuff
