  • TEL62 hardware status

  • TEL62 boards distribution

  • TEL62 firmware status

  • TEL62 dry run tests

  • Towards the technical run

Hardware status
Hardware status

  • 14 V2 boards arrived in Pisa at beginning of July for preliminary tests before delivering at CERN.

    • 3 boards perfectly working

    • 8 boards with several “little” problems solved in Pisa

    • 3 boards sent back to mounting firm

  • After 10 days of hard work in Pisa, 11 boards perfectly working delivered at CERN.

  • New hardware issues found out at CERN:

    bad transport… or bad handling… or else?

    Please “handle with care”!

  • Additional work done in CERN new electronic lab

    but not all the problems have been solved

  • 3 boards at ARTEL and 2 in Pisa to be repaired:

    • 1 for STRAW

    • 1 for possible use with TALK (now using TELL1)

    • 2 for LKr/L0

    • 1 spare

Dry run tel62 tests
Dry run TEL62 tests

  • TTC interface using LTU in standalone mode

    • fiber cabling and clock distribution

    • choke and error lines

    • trigger counting (A channel)

    • trigger type decoding (B channel)

    • timestamp spacing

  • PP buffers using detector FEE and TDCB

    • Data merging from 4 IB to 1 OB

    • Data monitoring (using fake TDC data)

  • TTC interface using TALK and LTU in global mode, and using 7 TEL62

    • trigger counting

    • trigger type decoding

    • synchronization

    • start of burst

    • end of burst

    • physics triggers (data extracted from DDR, stop in the SL IB, bug understood)

    • packet extraction, merging in pc farm, storage (for all triggers but the physics triggers)

Towards the technical run
Towards the technical run

  • Complete the distribution of the repaired boards.

    Please contact us for every problem found using the TEL62: all boards must work perfectly before the beginning of technical run

  • Firmware:

    • firmware uploading: refinement of jbi player needed

    • complete corrections to data format (physics triggers)

    • fix in the SL to complete data flow from DDR to storage, after receiving physics trigger

    • decide “what to do” after the EOB signal arrives

    • secondary priority: other ways to read the DDR (triggers not from primitives or triggerless mode for debug) could be useful?

  • Test:

    • re-test the data flow from DDR extraction to farm, with fake data and then pulsing the front-end

    • test the trigger flow to the GBE

    • simulate a real run to test the entire chain TALK-LTU-TEL62, also using run control

  • PP  SL communication test

  • TDCB  PP communication test (200pin conn.)
