a n dy measurement requirements
ANDY Measurement Requirements
  • Want to measure π0 and high pair-mass Drell-Yan continuum between J/Ψ and ϒ
  • Need to measure Invariant Mass and Position of reconstructed particles
  • Need sufficient resolution of deposited energy and position
  • Beam-Beam Counters (BBC) need relatively crude timing resolution of hits for basic Minimum Bias Trigger
  • RHIC Crossing Rate : 10 MHz
  • Hadronic Interaction Cross Section : ~30 mb
  • Drell-Yan Signal Cross Section : ~7 x 10-5mb at 500GeV
  • Need reconfigurable Digital Trigger System/Pattern Recognition to distinguish signal from other interactions

data storage and manipulation dsm boards
Data Storage and Manipulation (DSM) Boards
  • 128 Digital Input bits
    • Differential Signaling
    • From QT or DSM
    • 16 channels x 8 bits
  • 32 Digital Output bits
  • Programmable FPGA over VME
    • For Trigger Algorithms
  • Buffered data readout over VME
  • Performs trigger algorithm on 128 input bits to produce 32 output bits for next layer of trigger tree

DSM Datapath

Chris Perkins

clock distribution
Clock Distribution
  • Need to keep all boards in sync across many VME crates
  • Custom designed RHIC Clock and Control (RCC) Board
  • Buffers incoming clock from accelerator (~ 10 MHz)
  • Fans out clock and control signals to individual trigger boards and digitizer board VME crates
  • Configurable phase controls

Chris Perkins

data acquisition receiver
Data Acquisition Receiver
  • Individual boards in each VME crate are readout over the VME backplane
  • Data is sent to an aggregating DAQ receiver over a custom built Fiber Data Network (overall data rate ~ 2 Gb/s)
  • Standard Linux machine (DAQ) houses custom built PCI card to receive digitized and triggered data
  • Current bottleneck is boards readout serially over VME backplane
  • Additional VME crates/Trigger boards can be added to system with no penalty because VME crates readout in parallel
  • Events can currently be collected at ~ 3kHz depending on detector occupancy
    • Further optimization is still ongoing
  • Token indexing system correlates packets from each crate and assembles into full event

trigger electronics tree run 2011
Trigger Electronics Tree – Run 2011
  • Digitizers/Buffering/Data Manipulation
  • Digital Trigger Tree
  • Data funnels through digital electronics

  • data
  • Trigger algorithms in FPGAs for easily
  • reconfigurable triggers (over VME)
  • Trigger system can look at every RHIC
  • crossing for a trigger (10 MHz)
    • (nearly zero deadtime)

reconfigurable fpga trigger algorithms
Reconfigurable FPGA Trigger Algorithms
  • The following triggers have been developed so far and can be interleaved with each other during data-taking:
  • LED (for monitoring detector stability/gains)
  • Cosmic-rays (for relative calibration of Hcal)
  • Minimum-bias (based on BBC)
  • ECal Sum (for triggering on π0)
  • HCal Sum (for triggering on jets)
  • ZDC (for local polarimetry)

Chris Perkins

jet trigger
Jet Trigger
  • Jet Trigger = Threshold on HCal Sum with BBC collisionrequirement
  • Crossings before and after Jet trigger are relatively clean
  • Delivered luminosity is fully recorded, with minimal impact from livetime

Chris Perkins

example jet triggered events
Example : Jet Triggered Events
  • Select from jet-trigger events for HCal “high-tower” to be centered in module
  • Display for each detector of each module the ADC count as color scale (black=greatest count yellow=lowest count)
  • Events look “jetty”, as expected

Chris Perkins

scaler boards
Scaler Boards
  • Capable of capturing input bits for every RHIC crossing (~10 MHz)
  • Currently 30 input bits but easily expandable in the future
  • Data is streamed to Linux Data Receivers and stored on disk

conclusions
Conclusions
  • STAR Trigger System Infrastructure Design was successfully ported to AnDY Trigger/DAQ System for Run 2011
  • A suite of simultaneously running triggers was developed and used in 2011
  • Expanded detector set in future runs will fit into current Trigger/DAQ system while retaining current DAQ rate capabilities
