Csc frontend trigger problem
CSC: Frontend Trigger Problem for CMS: Design and Radiation Testing

  • Out-of-time PU induces deadtime at higher luminosity  look at PU100

  • Particular issue is the ME1/1 “TMB” building chamber track segments

    • Two aspects making ME1/1 special:

      • Very high occupancies

      • ME1/1 TMBs effectively serve two chambers (inner ME1/a, outer ME1/b)

  • Need better FPGA to maintain efficiency

    • The algorithm is ready (V. Khotilovich)

    • Design of prototype TMB completed

  • Improve muon trigger efficiency for |h|>2.1

    • Rate increase compensated by requiring 3 station coincidence for |h|>2.1

      • With new TMB can do w/o efficiency loss

      • Needs firmware modifications in CSCTF

Radiation studies for new csc boards
Radiation Studies for New CSC Boards for CMS: Design and Radiation Testing

  • Will the new components survive the expected exposure in the CMS Endcap at HL-LHC?

    • Not just CSC trigger boards, but also for the front-end boards

      • DCFEBs and ODMB, as well as new TMB mezzanine

      • Expected 1 MeV neutron fluence: 3 *1012 n/cm2 over 10-years

        • 9 krad dose, do tests up to ~30 krad level for 3-times safety factor

  • Will the Single Event Upset rates be unacceptably high?

    • FPGAs, fiber links, etc. used in front-end boards

      • Expected 20 MeV neutron fluence: 2.7 *1011 n/cm2over 10-years

      • Measure SEU cross sections for individual design elements

  • Initial radiation testing was done in 2011

    • Digital components were tested with 55 MeV protons

      • Performed at the Texas A&M University Cyclotron facility

    • Other components tested with ~1 MeV neutrons

      • At Texas A&M University Nuclear Science Center reactor

        • A series of 5 exposures to test 40 different components

    • Results to be published soon, paper accepted by NIMA

Voltage regulator radiation tests
Voltage Regulator Radiation Tests for CMS: Design and Radiation Testing

  • Testing performed at the Texas A&M Nuclear Science Center

    • 1 megawatt reactor operating at 6 kW, provides 9.9 *108 n/cm2s

  • Multiple samples of several COTS regulators, two exposures

    • First exposure represents ~10 HL-LHC year dose (10 krad)

    • Second exposure adds ~20 HL-LHC years, total of 30 year dose (30 krad)

    • Regulator performance tested before and after each exposure

      • Regulators were unpowered during exposure

  • Some regulators showed no ill-effects

    • National Semi LP38501 and LP38853

    • Micrel 49500 and 69502

    • TI TPS74901

  • Others did not fare so well…

    • Maxim 8557

    • Sharp PQ035ZN1, PQ05VY053, PQ070XZ

    • TI TPS75601, TPS75901

    • No improvement seen with additional cool-down time

Impact of the 2011 seu measurements
Impact of the 2011 SEU Measurements for CMS: Design and Radiation Testing

  • How would these cross sections affect CSC operations in HL-LHC?

    • Snap12 Transmitter: < 1 SEU per year per link

    • Snap12 Receiver: ~1 SEU per week per link

      • These typically just affect a single data word

    • Finisar Optical Transceiver: ~7 SEU/day/link

      • Typically just affects a single data word

      • Low rate, less than one error in 3 *1013 bits

    • FPGA GTX Transceivers: ~3 SEU/year/link

    • FPGA Block RAMs: ~9 SEU/day/chip

      • These typically affect a single bit in a single cell

Seu test results 2012 1
SEU Test Results 2012 (1) for CMS: Design and Radiation Testing

  • Reflex Photonics 3.5 Gbps Snap12 Receiver: r12-c01001

    • Random PRBG data patterns @3.2 Gbps on each of eight links

    • These SEUs only caused transient bit errors in the data

    • 2012 SEU cross section result: s = (6.4 ± 0.2) *10-9 cm2

    • Combined 2011+2012: s = 9.5 *10-10 cm2 per link

      • Similar to 2011 result, about 40% smaller

  • Emcore 3.3 Gbps Snap12 Receiver: EMRS1216

    • Same PRBG test as above

    • 2012 SEU cross section result: s = (9.8 ± 0.2) *10-9 cm2

      • This gives s = 12 *10-10 cm2 per link

      • Similar to Reflex Photonics combined result, about 30% larger

  • Emcore 3.3 Gbps Snap12 Transmitter: EMTS1216

    • Same PRBG test as above; tested two of these parts

    • These SEUs only caused transient bit errors in the data

    • 2012 SEU cross section: s = (1.7 ± 0.2) *10-10 cm2

      • This gives s = 2.1 *10-11 cm2 per link

        • Nearly double the 2011 result for Reflex Photonics transmitter

        • Still very low rate of SEUs, so not a concern

TWEPP 2012


Seu test results 2012 2
SEU Test Results 2012 (2) for CMS: Design and Radiation Testing

  • Finisar Optical Transceiver ftlf8524e2gnl: Transmit side

    • Gigabit Ethernet packet transmission tests to PCI card, 4 kB @ 500 Hz

      • Bad or missing packets received at the PC are “transmit” SEUs

    • These SEUs caused lost GbE packets and rare “powerdown” events

    • 2012 SEU cross section result: s = (4.3 ± 0.3) *10-10 cm2

      • About 6 times the 2011 result; consistent with *6 increase in link duty cycle

    • Correcting for real CSC transmitter duty cycle: s = 8.2 *10-9 cm2 per link

      • We expect to see ~1 SEU per link per day during HL-LHC running

  • Finisar Optical Transceiver ftlf8524e2gnl: Receive side

    • New test in 2012, load the BRAMs with data and read them back

      • Errors read back twice the same way are “receive” SEUs

    • These SEUs only caused transient bit errors

    • 2012 SEU cross section: s = (7.5 ± 0.1) *10-9 cm2 per link

      • We expect to see ~1 SEUs per link per day

    • *Three Finisars tested: one died at 33 krad, another at 41 krad

      • The third chip survived with 30 krad

  • TI Bus-Exchange Level-Shifter: sn74cb3t16212

    • Still no SEU observed,2011+2012 result: s90% < 4.0 *10-12 cm2

FPGA SEU Results 2012 for CMS: Design and Radiation Testing

  • GTX Transceiver (55% used in FPGA)

    • Random PRBG data patterns @3.2 Gbps on each of eight links

    • These SEUs only caused transient bit errors in the data

    • 2012 SEU cross section result: s = (10 ± 0.8) *10-10 cm2

      • Similar to 2011 result, ~50% larger, consistent with additional active links

  • Block RAM (74% used in FPGA)

    • Built-in ECC feature was used to protect data integrity

    • Software controlled write and read for BRAM memory tests

    • No errors were detected in the BRAM contents: mitigation at work

    • 2012 SEU cross section: s90% < 8.2 *10-10 cm2

  • CLB (43% used in FPGA)

    • Most of the logic is a shift register system with voting

    • Some of it was unvoted logic for control and monitoring

      • This masks the “mitigation” effect of voting somewhat

    • 2012 SEU cross section result: s = (6.0 ± 0.5) *10-9 cm2

      • Much smaller than 2011 SEU result, factor of 6 better: mitigation at work

      • With this we expect ~1 CLB SEU per FPGA per day
