3. DCS

  • PiPPo - Compiling and testing the new SCA component from the elctronics group. Giving feedback them how to modify to fix the timing errors at 240 MHz.
  • Preparing IC field usage tests (we still use I2C dongle to program the GBTx).

4. PCIe

  • PiPPo and Sanjoy finishing the multi page support for the DMA engine (one super page per GBT link). Optimized register layout and code cleaning for the next release.
  • Sanjoy sucessfully tested the Flash controler from Altera in a System Console / JTAG based design. Now he is adding to our standalone DMA desing for testing through BAR access.

5. Integration

  • The TPC FEC setup is connected to cru-server1. PiPPo managed to reach and program the second GBTx through the SCA.

6. Production

  • IN003 and IN004 production is in progress (but currently halted to prepare the preprogrammed TFC PLL chips).
  • IN001 and IN002 - Managed to permanently update the miniPOD setting, but the TFC PLL is still not visible on the I2C bus.
  • 2 x 24 PCIe40 PCB (final version) ordered for ALICE. Expected in 4 weeks. 24 will be assembled in Europe by LHCb.
