The DTMROC-tester (version 3) has three different operating modes:
|This mode is used when testing whether or not a chip (daughter-board) works.
This mode is know as 'Service Mode' because this is the
mode used during detector service or testing of new chips/boards at the assembly place.
Only reduced measurement/logging capabilities
|This mode is used as a high-performance chip-tester and can perform any desirable test on the DTMROC.
This mode is known as 'Performance Mode' because this mode measures the performance
of the DTMROC.
|This mode is a compromize between the other two;
Most tests of MODE 1 can be performed, but because of the
lower bandwidth of the serial communication, the logging is reduced.
This mode is known as 'PC Mode'.
The software consists of 4 different parts:
Assembler code for the on-board CPU (PIC17C756), source-code
ABEL-code for the programmable chips (ispLSI1048E, ispLSI1032), program
|LabView program for controlling the tester through a
VME/PC controller (Windows95/98).
Requires PC/VME interface board.
