SyncTest x742 software is a C-based console application for the specific support of the x742 CAEN digitizers basing on the CAENDigitizer library.
The software has the specific goal of demonstrating the synchronization of two V/VX1742.
SyncTest x742 can perform the following operations:
- Connect two digitizers through a physical communication interface (USB, Optical Link or VME).
- Program the digitizers for the synchronization according to parameters written in a configuration file (text file).
- Check the clock alignment.
- Start and stop the acquisition (run on/off).
- Acquire waveforms from the digitizers and check the alignment of the signal in comparison to a reference channel.
- Save the waveform samples to timestamped ASCII files.
SyncTest x742 is provided with C source files to let the users customize the code for personalized solutions.
The program core is a C application that configures the digitizer, starts/stops the acquisition, and checks the alignment of a signal in comparison to a reference channel, according to a set of parameters as reported in the configuration text file. Data passing the alignment check (waveforms or time histograms) can be plotted using the third-party Gnuplot tool, or saved to output text files.
