1 Off-detector & Software development of DAQ System for the EUDET calorimeters Tao Wu On behalf of CALICE-UK Collaboration

2 ILC/ECFA 2008 WarsawEUDET/CALICE UK DAQ2 EUDET DAQ Targets Maximizing to use of off-the-shelf commercial components, cheap, scalable and maintainable Provide well-defined interfaces between DAQ components to allow for minimizing costs and development cycles; A control system to easily integrate the rest of sub-systems of detectors Software to build events from bunch train data and disparate sources into single event data Manage network and data storage

3 ILC/ECFA 2008 WarsawEUDET/CALICE UK DAQ3 DAQ Mechanical Design targets Targeting EUDET Module and ILC/CALICE; Aim to develop a generic system e.g. ECAL/HCAL Triggerless DAQ system: use C&C instead All data are sent off detector within a bunch train Use bunch struct. as advantages: 1ms in bunch train, read out data within 200ms of inter-train gap; DAQ system will also control power cycling of readout ASICs A funnel-like DAQ to collect, wrap and transmit data in stages before sending to central storage

8 ILC/ECFA 2008 WarsawEUDET/CALICE UK DAQ8 ODR Data Access Rate transfer the data from ODR memory to the user-program memory via 4 links ~700 MByte/sec by 25 DMA buffers B.G., A.M @ RHUL All measurements: single requester thread, no disk write, data copied to the host memory.

9 ILC/ECFA 2008 WarsawEUDET/CALICE UK DAQ9 Clock & Control (C&C) board C&C unit provides machine clock and fast signals to 8x ODR/LDA. A low jitter and fixed latency; Logic control (FPGA, connected via USB) Link Data Aggregator provides next stage fanout to Detector Interfaces Eg C&C unit  8 LDAs  8 DIFs = 64 DUs. Signalling over same HDMI type cables Facility to generate optical link clock (~125-250MHz from ~50MHz machine clock) Board is already designed, will be build soon LDA Host PC PCIe ODR C&C Host PC PCIe ODR Machine Run- Control M.P., UCL busy
