Minutes for UCL Proton Calorimetry Meetings, 2nd September


Simon Jolly, Saad Shaikh, Raffaella Radogna, Fern Pannell

Saad Shaikh

  • Almost finished first draft of report: need to cut 1-2 pages and edit.
  • Simon is investigating how to send CSV data to HEP server.
  • Confirmed with TI how to daisy-chain DDCs – Simon to respond to Marko.
    • J2 of daisy-chain board to be connected to J1 of board connected to FPGA.
    • DOUT appears to be sent to DIN correctly on CosyLab circuit diagrams.
    • OR gates to cascade DVALID signals across board in future design.
    • Might be able to connect DVALID of 2nd board directly to FPGA for test with Raffy's DDC232, though Marko says current design won't work.
  • Tested CoolTerm on Raspberry Pi – doesn't seem to work. Fern has prepared Raspberry Pi to take home with CoolTerm installed.
  • Raffy to investigate built-in alternative to CoolTerm using stty and cat.
  • Need to test new jumper cables in setup – will go to UCL on Friday 4th September.

Raffaella Radogna

Fern Pannell

  • Completed online Javascript crash course.
    • Need further work on asynchronous programming (async-await).
    • Research JS promises.
    • Need to look into libraries for parsing CSV data and interactive data visualisations.
  • Dual fan heat sink installed on 1 Pi.
    • CPU temperature significantly reduced.
    • Swapped out cooling pads for RS silicon gel - better thermal conductivity
  • 3 SD cards loaded with essentials for use with Pi.
    • Apache, PHP extensions, XRDP, Matchbox Keyboard, CoolTerm.
  • CoolTerm tested on Pi - cannot keep up with config data.
