Firmware Versions Details
Version C11 and Earlier
These versions had random channel timing offsets of 4 ns which changed from run to run.
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.
- 4ns shifts are gone https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3743512
- Pulses show up later in the run: https://logbooks.jlab.org/entry/3756335
Does not appear to show any issues.
