  • Firmware status
    • 11 crates in hall with firmware that reads data in raw form
    • Firmware uploads are now done completely over ethernet+VME (no longer need to pull out module)
    • Cody has been helping Beni track down specific issues with individual modules (e.g. missing bits) in FDC
      • fast readout in raw mode is first priority
    • Cody is also working on procurement of additional f250 modules
    • F125 algorithm is first priority though
  • Only one CDC crate is currently in the hall
    • FDC will be moved into solenoid this week
    • CDC will be moved into hall next week
      • No testing of CDC will be done before then
      • It will be 2 or more weeks before CDC is connected for readout
    • Beni will have checked all FDC channels by this evening (not all will be working though, but he'll have a list of ones with issues)
    • There was some more discussion on the expected timing resolution of the CDC with the new and old algorithms
      • Fernando noted that even the old algorithm is within design specs.
