This page should contain information about the Focal project, especially about the interfacing from the Mimosa chips to the readout electronics.

Overview

Mimosa chips

Readout electronics

Adapterboard

The schematics of the board can be found here: Adapterboard

Control and Readout board

The idea is to use a Xilinx Virtex 6 development board as a first prototype. The board would run Petalinux, and some software to access the firmware registers. A software framework for the TPC detector is to be adapted for the use on the Xirtex 6 board and Petalinux.

Firmware

The VHDL counterpart is to be found here: http://web.ift.uib.no/kjekscgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/alice-fw/trunk/messagebuffer/

Software

The software driver for the message buffer system can be found here: http://web.ift.uib.no/kjekscgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/alice-dcs/trunk/rculinux/dcscMsgBufferInterface/
