Collaboration with Detector Systems Development Group (DSDG) of TBU. (Technology Business Unit ) Completed

Collaboration with Detector Systems Development Group (DSDG) of TBU. (Technology Business Unit ) Completed : – Gbit data rate from memory on the devkit => 240 Mbit/sec. – System boots with fallback to golden copy. – Created a DMA peripheral with transfer rate of 1. 1 Gbytes/sec. – Pin allocation of FEE 64 memory and Gbit signals checked. Next steps : – Create a memory test and configuration system. – Review the FEE 64 schematic and pcb layout. 16 th July 2009

Prototype fixtures for software and VHDL development Fixture comprises a ZIF socket on a pcb designed to mount a packaged ASIC onto an ML 507 FPGA development board. Also a copy of the ADC and buffers used for the Multiplex readout. • Pin out and advice provided by Steve Thomas. • Fixture will allow communications between the ASIC and Linux to be developed. • Mux readout logic VHDL can also be developed. • Fixture designed and manufactured in DL electronic workshops. • 2 ASICs delivered. • Multiplex readout ADC circuit prototype in development for VHDL and performance testing. 16 th July 2009

Initial testing of FEE 64 • Power supplies – 28 : Check for noise, stability, accuracy, efficiency…. • FPGA – – Check configuration via JTAG. – Check processor operates with internal memory and terminal. – Check configuration from EEPROM. • DDR 2 Memory – Run test system developed by DSDG. – Check results and optimise access speed for best performance. • Gbit Ethernet – Run test system developed by DSDG. • ASIC communications and discriminator output timing • Analog buffers and ADCs 16 th July 2009

A few of the remaining Tasks • • • Design Mezzanine pcb ? Complete

A few of the remaining Tasks • • • Design Mezzanine pcb ? Complete Mechanical design. ( Is waiting for final component heights ) VHDL for prototype fixtures. Test documentation. Commission first FEE 64 units VHDL for first experimental use. – Full Linux processor with peripherals and DMA ( from DSDG work ) – ASIC communications ( from prototype work ) – ASIC multiplexed readout. ( from prototype work ) • Timestamped based on discriminator signals. • Formatted and transferred to processor memory as four time ordered data streams. • • FEE 64 design documentation. Prepare for production. 16 th July 2009
