Firmware Versions Details

Version C11 and Earlier

These versions had random channel timing offsets of 4 ns which changed from run to run.

Version C12


The 4ns offsets appear to be gone. There is evidence of corruption in a single event in a single channel at low probability very early (within the first few events) in the beginning of a run. Following this all data seems okay.


Version C13


Does not appear to show any issues.
