The CBDLeCroy4300B cannot be registered as a stack module by itself. Instead it must be registered first to a CBDCamacCrate. That CBDCamacCrate must then be registered to a CBDCamacBranch module. See the example below to understand how this works.
There are a number of options that are provided to ultimately control the command register of the device. The command register is what establishes how the FERA will read out its data. Two options must be specified to operate the device, -pedestals and slot. If either of these are not specified, the initialization of the module will fail.
During initialization the following operations occur:
Clear the module
Write all pedestals passed to the -pedestal option
Compute the command register from user define options and write it to the module
At the end of the run, no actions are taken.
During stack execution initiated by an event trigger, this driver will operate based on the following logic:
if "-camacclear" is true Clear the module
Specifies the slot of the CAMAC crate the target module is occupying. DEFAULT is 1.
A proper tcl list of 16 integer parameters defining the pedestals for each of the 16 channels. The first element of the list will configure the first channel of the FERA, the second element will configure the second channel, and so on. REQUIRED
The virtual station number to associate with the target device. This will be included in the header if data compression is enabled.
Specify whether to use pedestal subtraction in ECL port readout (aka. EPS). Default is false.
Specify whether to enable a data compression cycle before ECL port readout (aka. ECE). Default is false.
Specify whether to enable ECL port readout (aka. EEN). Default is false.
Specify whether to use pedestal subtraction in CAMAC readout (aka. CPS). Default is false.
Specify whether to enable a data compression cycle before CAMAC readout (aka. CCE). Default is false.
Specify whether to configure the device for sequential readout in CAMAC (aka. CSR). Default is false.
Specify whether the allow the device to emit a LAM when data is available to be read (aka. CLE). Default is false.
Specify whether to suppress output of overflows as well as zeros (aka. OAFS). Default is false.
Example 1. Sample setup of a few FERAs
CBDLeCroy4300B create fera -slot 10 CBDLeCroy4300B config fera -pedestals \ [list 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1] CBDLeCroy4300B config fera -eclenable on CBDLeCroy4300B config fera -eclpedsub on CBDLeCroy4300B config fera -eclcompression on CBDLeCroy4300B config fera -camacclear off # Create a crate to stick it in CBDCamacCrate create crate0 -crate 1 CBDCamacCrate config crate0 -modules [list fera] # Create a branch to register the crate in CBDCamacBranch create branch0 -branch 0 CBDCamacBranch config branch0 -crates [list crate0]
Sets up a LeCroy4300B module with all pedestals 1 to be read out by the ECL ports. The FERA resides in slot 10.
