    • GEM INFN
    • RF time
    • HV
    • Scalers
    • Recoil polarimeter
    • EPICS
    • Helicity
    • start / stop / EPICS script


  • On-going tasks
    • Network setup ( done ) - SBS MPD side might need few cables - need pull network for SBS side (0%)
    • Scaler crate setup (70 % - Steve ) - Steve could not talk to CPU (done) - IP fixed with DHCP - need change fan tray - CAEN ( done )
**documentation of VME crate names to power cycle - need to make sure all VXS are in dhcp -Bryan ( done ) 
    • 3 rd GEM VXS crate install router moved up ( 100% )
    • need power and network in GEM bunker ( done )
    • boot VME controllers (100 % done - need ask hostname TS crate )
    • TS cables - all fibers plugged (done) - will post informations -hodoscope / grinch/ shower separate - can be combined at any time now everything plugged to TS

- new firmware for LHRS TI

    • detector cabling
    • new MPD production - about to start - FPGA shipped to Paolo -
    • MPD VTP readout - on-going in daq lab - still having issue getting APV sending data to MPD - events going through high speed link
    • MPD being setup in Hall A - need setup VTPs to boot (done ) - 10 gigE network plugged (done) - will be able to test in Hall A (done) - 5.2 KHz max trigger rate - 900 MB/s max per VTP - LV installed soon (done )
    • setup portservers : 1 4 port portserver for VTP (done), still need to set up a 8 port one and HCAL portserver
    • need to install remote switch for crate in bunker (done hareboot32) - rest are VXS or VME64 - need put CAEN crate on network
    • Bigbite - HCal trigger setup - need check with Bob if additionnal NIM crate need to be install
    • TS setup - 90 %
    • Beamline crate setup ( in scaler crate ) - FADC is in scaler need to be setup - need pull raster BPM BCM (0% will do it with David and Bob )
    • HCAL cabling ( done )
    • HCAL need power ( done, Berta )
    • Mark hodoscope trigger ( done )
    • Computer move to Hall A : sbsdaq1/2/3 tedbbdaq (done ) enpcamsonne ( done ) - need to install X server - Need ask Ole -
    • LHRS fiber pull ( waiting fiber August 13th ) - most likely LHRS at end of SBS run (done )
    • Cosmics trigger ( done ) -
    • Cosmics HCAL ( ongoing )
    • Cosmics Shower ( on going )
    • Cosmics Hodoscope ( on-going )
    • Cosmics Grinch
    • Test 10 gig link to DAQ to adaq1
    • EPICS script -
    • alarm handler (David)
  • Outstanding issues
    • 2 bad FADCs Bigbite - 1 FADC was repaired - one being repaired - 1 Compton FADC - repaired can use as spare ( done )
    • SD delay : still need 2 SDs ( Glasgow and INFN just requested quote ) Hall B lending two - will get once checked
    • need to adjust for HCAL transit time with different PMTs
    • status of cosmics paddles ( installed by Bogdan )
    • GEM fibers too short : Mark will order parts - ( fiber ordered - + 2 extensions ordered )
    • 15 bad MPDs - need to look at fixing - Ben ? Dustin loaning us 6 MPDs - need 85 total - 67 in hand - 1 MPD (301) VME address issue in some slot -
      • APV needed 1208 - 966 in hand working - Michael might lend 40 - ( check with Thir )
    • GEM fiber possibly bad - 2 broken - if long sleeve want to pull spare in separate conduit ( extemsion setup - 50 % )
    • GEM HV IP need setup ( Alex ) Done
    • GEM clock/trigger box for BB side ( got one from UVA )
    • GEM LV remote control ( done )
    • GEM VTP transceivers hanging - ( swapped with SSP - firmware fix will be implemented )
