This will eventually be the PPC, but we can test now with the MV177, after the ADC hardware arrives. So at least one of the 5 ADCs needs to come quickly. This implies that the driver needs to be looked at so that the order can be made. We will probably need waveform support in the driver to achieve the response required with 35 or so signals.LUCHINI/SAA/RON (One person month total)
Look at the existing Labview and plan from Kieth. Look at the DAC output requirements and digital I/O. Come up with a flexible scheme to drive the SNL program. Expand the databases and displays. This may also involve calibration tools to run on the fast IOC on user demand.RON/JINGCHEN (One person month)
ALH/Channel Archiver/Matlab(licenses??)/CMLOG/File ManagementSAA/LEEANN/RONM/JINGCHEN (One person month)
Look at the drivers and hardware specs.
Decide on and order hardware.
Begin looking at the required control algorithms.
Modify driver to provide quadratic conversion.
Later, if necessary:
perhaps support buffered waveform output and LONGIN output.
For the waveforms, SHORT and LONG are most important, followed by FLOAT.
Consider also parallel output of all 8 channels to a waveform.
Set up test of a (few) channel (s) and look at MV177 loading.
Decide on best scheme for 120 Hz processing.
Set up the A/B databases and displays.
Get ALH and channel archiver in place.
Look at the DESY archive record.
