The CDF TESTCLK module - Providing system level clocking and triggering for Run 2 prototyping crates

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The TESTCLK module was specifically designed for use in prototyping crates for the Colliding Detector Facility (CDF) Run 2 Experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The TESTCLK Module allows the user to supply system clocks and trigger signals to stand-alone crates. This module has allowed designers of the CDF Run 2 electronics to thoroughly test their modules, despite the lack of a DAQ system supplied clock and trigger interface. This paper will explore the features that were found important to incorporate into the TESTCLK, and describe how they were implemented. The paper will also describe how the TESTCLK module has ... continued below

The TESTCLK module was specifically designed for use in prototyping crates for the Colliding Detector Facility (CDF) Run 2 Experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The TESTCLK Module allows the user to supply system clocks and trigger signals to stand-alone crates. This module has allowed designers of the CDF Run 2 electronics to thoroughly test their modules, despite the lack of a DAQ system supplied clock and trigger interface. This paper will explore the features that were found important to incorporate into the TESTCLK, and describe how they were implemented. The paper will also describe how the TESTCLK module has been used to support the initial implementation of the DAQ system at CDF. This has allowed data taking and testing of CDF Electronic modules before production clock and trigger modules became available.
