TGBT14A_912_129 - FPGA Noise source tests


  • Repeat FPGA noise source tests with Jason's new BOF


  • start at 2:30pm
  • Ray loads Sep_11_2121 version of the BOF file
  • Run FpgaNoiseSourceMode24 Configures Bank A. Looks much more sensible. Input Samplers and sbNsnap both at ~ -16dB
  • Choosing sb8snap freezes the VEGASDM display.
  • Scan 1: Track 30 secs.
  • Looks like this BOF has the "old" filter in it.
  • Scan 2: Switch to ten second integrations, and do a half hour scan.
  • Somehow, managed to run a script with "to_nocal" iso "tp_nocal", but seems to have collected data correctly.
  • 3:45pm - switch back to "production" (new release) system
  • Scan 3: ConfigToolMode4Test scan again, to check release is still good. Managers were off, only one bank active
  • Scan 4: Repeat. All looks good.
  • 4:30pm - finito
