MFCTEST Muon Fanout Card Test Software Satyanarayana Bheesette Tata Institute, India
October 16, 2000Muon Commissioning Meeting2 Specification of MFCTEST Initialization procedures Memory and register probes and checks Different readout modes (needs MFTC) Interrupt responses (needs MFTC) Diagnostic functions NVRAM management Data browsers and other functions
October 16, 2000Muon Commissioning Meeting3 Software environment External network connectivity to the processor through Ethernet. Hosts: d0ola at DAB and fasic14 at High Rise Console port used for user interface –COM port on PC through HyperTerminal at High Rise –Dumb terminal at PDT test stand MFCTEST runs under VxWorks
October 16, 2000Muon Commissioning Meeting4 MFCTEST features Coded in C, cross-compiled in d0mino to run on 68k CPU targets MFCTEST operates through simple, menu driven functions; no graphics or GUIs Log file maintenance option On-line help
October 16, 2000Muon Commissioning Meeting7 MFCTEST documentation Specification of the D0 MFC test stand software Memory map, registers and bit allocations of MFTC Get started with MFCTEST software On-line help on MFC test software A note on the MFC test stand?
October 16, 2000Muon Commissioning Meeting8 To do list Testing of code for Ext and Sys readout modes(MFTC Hardware intensive). Testing of code for interrupt response from above modes. Have one more week at FNAL Hope to continue interaction with Mark from India. Suggestions Welcome.
October 16, 2000Muon Commissioning Meeting9 Thanks to… Boris Baldin Igor Chrin Tom Diehl Sten Hansen Mark Kozlovsky Terry OBrien
October 23, 2000Muon Commissioning Meeting10 MFCTEST Status Started accessing MFTC registers on last Friday; still there are problems to tackle. Interrupts checked; problems with FIFO and FE interrupts. Reason understood? MFTCs HOTLink has started to work. Hope to have reframing and BIST today. SCL yet to take off. Started to check new MFC boards with MFCTEST. So far so good!
