Minutes for UCL Proton Calorimetry Meetings, 16th December
Simon Jolly, Raffaella Radogna, Saad Shaikh, Fern Pannell
- Tested frame rate of live ROOT fit with and without graph display: 12Hz without display, 5.5Hz with (canvas size dependent).
- Will start working on framework to capture data, average and perform fit and then upload results to web server.
- Nexys Video boards have been modified to allow separation of JTAG programming and DPTI interface. Can now use libFTDI for data transfer and see signals with ILA.
- Will get back to debugging USB interface.
- Now able to configure Nexys Video via SD card without Vivado, using 200GB SD card Fern provided.
- New DDC232 board prototypes due to arrive on Friday 18th, will collect and test after Christmas break.
- Slicker aesthetics than HTML Canvas and CanvasJS
- Commercial licensing more appropriate
- CanvasJS will be used for the intermediate development stage
- Moving away from the current HTML Canvas prototype towards a Chart.js model, via a CanvasJS interim product
- Substantial documentation and online support with CanvasJS compared to Chart.js, making the transition easier
- Subtle differences (so far) between CanvasJS and Chart.js, suggesting the move between these two libraries will be relatively straightforward.
- Current goals of the display visualised in CanvasJS
- Dynamically updating bars with a "fitted Bragg Curve" on top of the bars
- Randomly generated (hardcoded, not file read) values currently, just to be able to create a quick visual
- HTML Canvas issues such as axis labelling and adjusting scales have been removed with this CanvasJS version
- Next Steps:
- Get the CanvasJS model to display the data outputted from the Java file
- Once successfully displaying the java-written values, test the display with Saad and the Photodiodes - check the display is behaving as expected
