DAQ System We need to build a clone of the new test stand DAQ that is being put together at D0
New DAQ Consists of(for 4 Board Readout) u VIPA crate (10U) s Bit3 controller s 1553 controller s VRB (VME readout bus) s VRBc (VRB controller) s Serial command link receiver card (SCLr) u Sequencer crate s Sequencer controler (SEQc) + SCLr s Sequencer s 2 fibers for connection of the VTM s 2 grey cables for connection to the AFEs (2AFEs/cable) u AFE s 4 (+2) Boards (minimum) s Two backplanes for cyostat. u PC and custom cables u Special trigger cards (2) (STDB) u Hardware for downloads of firmware for AFE, SEQ, VRBc, and SEQc
New DAQ Cost (k$) u VME1 u SEQ1 u 1553 1 u Power supplies2 u AFE BPs2 u Bit3 controller1 u SEQc2 u AFEIIs4/each (X6) u SCLr cards2 u Rack1 u Cables, misc.4 TOTAL: $40-50K
New DAQ We need to get started soon on this. The Fermilab shutdown will also impact putting the DAQ together. D0 has floated funds to support the order of parts for MICE AFE II prototype boards, but to proceed on the DAQ, funds will have to be put in place at Fermilab. I will try to get done what I can, but there are limits on what D0 management will tolerate. There is also a VERY steep learning curve on becoming an expert on this system and at least one will be needed for the beam test. u So Far I have not been able to get additional Fermi people interested or, at least, committed to it (there is interest).
