2 All Trigger Modules In Production! 2 Front End Crate FADC250, (FADC125), (F1TDC) Crate Trigger Processor Signal Distribution Trigger Interface Trigger Control/Synchronization Trigger Supervisor Trigger Distribution L1 Trigger ‘Data’ MTP Ribbon Fiber Trigger ‘Link” Control Clock, Sync MTP Ribbon Fiber Global Trigger Crate Sub-System Processor Global Trigger Processor

3 Signal Distribution ( SD )  All production modules have been delivered and passed acceptance!  Nick Nganga has updated the final firmware to include:  Remote FPGA firmware download  Serial Number storage  Recent firmware update for F1TDC test purposes Acceptance test routine development will be used for long term maintenance Software (CODA) library routines complete and included with Full Crate Acceptance Testing (FCAT) – Bryan Moffit SD provides precision low jitter fan-out of 250MHz system clock, trigger and synch signals over VXS backplane to VXS payload modules Latest SD version includes clock jitter attenuation PLL Successfully used 2 SD boards during HPS experiment 3 Trigger Hardware Status Nick Nganga

4 TI – TD Trigger Interface – Trigger Distribution  All production modules have been delivered and pass acceptance  10 TI boards have been modified to be used as TI-”Master” units - TI “Master” mode will allow up to 9 front end crates to be operated from a single TI. Perfect application for several sub-systems. -The Hall D sub-systems can be operated without the Global Trigger/Trigger Supervisor crate -Allows for immediate DAq testing during initial detector installation and commissioning phase -TI-”Master” configuration can remain intact after Global Trigger system is installed. User’s will have option to run from Global Trigger/Sync/Clock or from TI-”Master”  Acceptance test routine development will be used for long term maintenance  Software (CODA) library routines complete and included with Full Crate Acceptance Testing (FCAT) 4 Trigger Hardware Status William Gu

5  Flash ADC 250Msps ( FADC250 ) - See Fernando’s update Production board delivery to JLAB groups is complete Firmware is stable and includes new “Mode 6” -Readout data includes pulse integral value and time stamp value is high resolution (LSB=62.5ps; 6-bits) -This mode will be used for production Physics operations and will be required for maximum trigger rate Released documentation does not match latest firmware revision, -Firmware is stable now, and will need to be ‘frozen’ so documentation can be reviewed and released -Major firmware revisions unlikely but every firmware change requires software driver routines to be updated. - Will establish firmware change request method and prioritize firmware updates. (FE and DAQ groups) 5 Trigger Hardware Status F. Barbosa H. Dong E. Jastrzembski Jeff Wilson

6 Crate Trigger Processor VXS Connectors Collect serial data from 16 FADC-250 (64Gbps ) Hai Dong Jeff Wilson 2013 Production CTP New Front Panel I/O 6 Crate Trigger Processor ( CTP ) Hall D production quantities (32) awarded to MTEQ in Virginia! 1 st Article board passes acceptance testing! -Production boards expected delivery 22July2013 -Latest Virtex V FPGA parts will support 5 Gbps transfer speed with FADC250 and provide additional FPGA resources for future L1 algorithms Successful operation with HPS calorimeter beam test with latest cluster finding algorithm!! Sixteen FADC250 boards successfully tested in full crate with FCAT application MTP Parallel Optics 8 Gbps to SSP

7 Crate Trigger Processor Level 1 algorithm requirements for Tagger hit pattern has been documented. New ‘scaler’ register requirements have been defined Hall D L1 trigger algorithm for full crate energy sum is stable and is part of FCAT Production version will support higher serial speeds. (5Gbps per ’lane’) Matches V5-FX70T on FADC250, and cost for highest grade Virtex V FPGA is included on production boards. Production version will include front panel I/O (LVDS) Production version will include VXS connection to CPU slot (PPT-17) for development of PCIe interface if needed. Present control/monitoring is via I^2C through Trigger Interface. - Not a high priority and may be moot if CPU does not include VXS Computed crate-level energy sum value sent via 10Gbps fiber optics to Global Trigger Crate (32bits every 4ns) 7 Hai Dong Jeff Wilson A. Somov

8 SubSystem Processor ( SSP )  All production boards have been delivered.  Production contract included: -10 Hall D -15 Hall B -1 each for Halls A & C Acceptance testing is complete and Ben’s test code will be retained for long term maintenance/development.  New FO Transceivers (QSFP) on production boards SSP has been successfully tested with two crate HPS beam test run SSP to GTP serial link definitions have been fully specified and implemented for VXS Initial testing of SSP (Xilinx) => GTP (Altera) Gigabit transceivers is successful  Manages trigger information from up to 8 front end crates. (2048 channels!)  SSP applications are beginning to blossom and these units will be used for a variety of DAq and Trigger solutions 8 Trigger Hardware Status Ben Raydo
