Minutes for UCL Proton Calorimetry Meetings, 26th August

Present

Simon Jolly, Saad Shaikh, Raffaella Radogna, Fern Pannell

Saad Shaikh

  • Mostly writing report – should finish first draft by the end of the week/early next week.
  • Gave feedback on Raffy's fellowship application.
  • Speaking with Marko about potential fixes for new DDC232 boards:
    • Ability to manually disable on-board LEDs.
    • Removal of resistors in inputs and mapping of DDC232 inputs to match physical order of photodiodes.
  • Daisy-chaining DDC232 not as obvious as originally thought – made a post on TI forum asking for clarification.
  • Wrote macro to convert CoolTerm saved FPGA output to single-line CSV file that updates continuously. Webpage code on Raspberry Pi will access file for live web-based plot of photodiode data.
  • Need to test CoolTerm and CSV macro on Raspberry Pi with Fern and see if new 3D-printed bar fits in DDC232 board.
    • Will go to UCL on 27/08/20 to test this and maybe pick up a Raspberry Pi.
  • Matt Warren suggested that light CoolTerm alternative can be made in Python using pyserial library.
    • Fern to look into this after webpage code, CoolTerm and CSV macro are working.
