PS VFE & PS/SPD FE Electronics Status and Plans 16 January 2008 LPC Clermont
PS/SPD FEB Status, Installation & Inventory • Production & Tests Finished: 112 PS/SPD FEB produced (including 2 prototypes) 100 boards installed in Pit 8 & Functional 10 spare boards @ LPC & Functional 2A patch 2 problematic boards left @ LPC ( PCB or connector issues ) • Installation Finished: PRS0 to PRS6, FE boards are individually Functional PRS7: No 380 V PSU / ‘burnt’ by inverted pair in power cable connector / connector now repaired C Side: CROC V4 with ‘last’ firmware in all PRS crates A Side: No CROCs
VFE Powering & Cooling • Water cooling is in the pipes since beginning December No leakage reported since then • All VFE on C side powered simultaneously / ‘All’ Functional • Temperature is Monitored: varies from 16 ºC (All OFF) to less than 25 º C (All ON) Allowed automatisation of test process Move to calibration tasks
VFE & FE RJ45 Pendant Issue • RJ45 connection FE / VFE is sensitive: • Cable seems well plugged mechanically but impedance miss-match on one of the 4 pairs • Loss of signal amplitude: up factor ~10 • Reflections: seen with LED flashes for ~0.2 % of channels • During cabling: • False connections @ both FE/VFE side: ~2% cables • Post cabling: • False connection ‘appear’ @ rate ~0.2% / monthonly on FE side • But, constant human activity on the ECAL platform … ‘Automated’ Test on PSDAQHVC01W of RJ45 VFE to FE connection: measure pedestal noise ‘we keep an eye on this’
RJ45 RJ45 RJ45 RJ45 VFE Sagita Pendant Issue • Sagita on back of VFE boards lost of connection for CLOCK signal / Due to: - Stresses through VFE RJ45 cables / in detector movements ? • Statistics: - C side: 7 / 50 VFE lost from may to July 2 / 50 VFE lost from July to September 2 / 50 VFE lost from September to November No loss during December /1 VFE (SM2T-01 still KO) - A side: 2 / 50 VFE lost from may to September No loss from September to December VFE electronics CLOCK VFE connectors RJ45 Signal Signal power Schematics of VFE ( 2 boards + connectors): sagitta caused by ?
DAQ: FEB / CROC Synchronisation From FEB signal to CROC: 2 phaser values to tune for synchronisation • Issue in PRS3 for FEB /CROC synchronisation • Related to DAQ of slots ~4-7 & 8-11 • CROC FE-PGA 2&3 PRS0-2 OK (but data left on PSDAQHVC01W …) KO OK KO OK Valid phases diagram for PRS3 (Over all PRS FEB slots)
DAQ: FE / VFE Synchronisation From VFE signal to FEB FE-PGA: 3 phaser values to tune for synchronisation 1) Sample VFE integration 2) Re-sample in FEB FE-PGA plateau plateau Validity diagrams against ADC phase based on FE & VFE pedestal signals For all FEB/VFE C side fADC multiple of 8 are pathologic plateau
Trigger: PRS Neighbours TOP/BOTTOM PRS Trigger bits TOP/BOTTOM neighbours: Transmitted via RJ45 Errors diagnosed @ data reception for some slots/boards Systematic problem @ FEB slot #2: No data received !!? ( ) FEBs I/Os validated in Clermont Backplane issues ? Not seen in Clermont Try to re-plug FEBs in faulty slots Tests Trigger ECAL/PRS, PRS/TVB & PRS LEFT/RIGHT (backplane) ongoing some re-cabling on PRS/TVB
Outlook Commissioning / Calibration work ongoing … • DAQ: Phase validity diagrams w/ new CROC Firmware Issue in PRS3 FEB/CROC phases • Trigger: Link tests ongoing Issue with some PRS TOP/BOTTOM slots: no data received • Pendant: VFE CLOCK loss / RJ45 stress Monitor FE RJ45 connections (~automated)
