Using modern software tools to design, simulate and test a Level 1 trigger sub-system for the D Zero Detector

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper describes a system which uses a commercial spreadsheet program and commercial hardware on an IBM PC to develop and test a track finding system for the D Zero Level 1 scintillating Fiber Trigger. The trigger system resides in a VME crate. This system allows the user to generate test input, write the pattern to the hardware simulate the results in software, read the hardware result: compare the results and inform the user of any differences.
