Plan/Checklist for Re-Installing the BigBite Hadron DAQ (including Neutron Detector).

Hadron Package DAQ

  • Remove all NIM/CAMAC/VME modules that will not be used.
  • Replace Linear Fi/Fo in second NIM bin.
  • Verify functionality and low noise of x10 Amps, 50/50 Splitters, and Linear Fi/Fo.
    • Recable all dE linear sums (L+R) from 50/50 splitters and to CAMAC Discriminators
  • Recable all E (dE) from x10 Amplifiers (50/50 splitters) to CAMAC Discriminators
  • Verify mapping of E and dE delay line from x10 Amplifiers to VME ADCs.
  • Cable E and dE scintillators from Hadron Package to DAQ Weldment Patch Panels
  • Move all target spin electronics to another location?

Neutron Detector DAQ

  • Acquire 2 NIM bins (300W) from Electron Package Frontend
  • Acquire 16 x10 Amplifiers (NIM Bin modules)
  • Acquire 2-4 wire-tie panels.
  • Acquire 16 CAMAC Discriminators
  • Acquire all patch cables
    • 240 for x10 Amp to discriminators
    • 240 for x10 Amp to Delay Patch Panel
    • 15 flat ribbon for Delay Patch Panel to FASTBUS ADCs (may already be there from Electron Package)
    • 16 flat ribbon for discriminators to FASTBUS TDCs (may already be there from Electron Package)
  • Install NIM bins and wire-tie patch panel in same rack as CAMAC crate.
    • Install 8 x10 Amps per NIM Bin
  • Verify functionality and low noise of x10 Amps.
  • Cable up and map all patch cables
  • Acquire TS-TIR handshake cable (RightHRS to BigBite Weldment)
  • Acquire 2 RG-8 for L1A (RightHRS to BigBite Weldment)
  • Acquire 4 RG-58 for redundant scaling of RightHRS triggers (RightHRS to BigBite Weldment)


  • Initialize and startup Quasielastic MySQL database
  • GUI to monitor F1TDC errors
