Figure 1 shows the raw signal from Accumulator 0 (no thresholds). Since the HV is off, this is pure FADC noise. It is plotted with the results of a Gaussian fit.
Taking the mean value of the Gaussian and dividing by the 6,600,998 samples taken in each MPS gives us a measured pedestal value of 3700.667.
Figure 2 shows the pedestal-subtracted signal from Accumulator 0, using
this new pedestal value. If everything worked well, this should be
centered on zero. As you can see, everything did work well: the mean is
consistent with zero. A mean value of 90 represents an error of one ten
thousandth of an FADC channel in the pedestal.
