  • Small efficiency improvement to FTDI code, optimising writing of averaged values and standard deviations to file.
    • CSV file format is now a column of: average value, standard deviation.
    • liveFit now also writes (x,y) points to output CSV file.
  • Benchmarked FTDI code on Raspberry Pi, approximate average time per acquisition below:
    • 170us with collecting and converting to hex
    • Hiccups with writing hex to file, 180us roughly. If no hiccups, keeps up with 170us
    • 530us with calculation of decimals for measurement record and rolling average, but not writing hex data to file.
    • 650us with calculation of averages and errors at 50Hz, but not writing hex or average values to file.
    • 750us with everything
  • Largely working on HEP summer school this week and next week.
  • Invited by Spyros to give a seminar for PART sometime in May.
  • Will meet with Clive tomorrow to further discuss daisy-chain problems.
