Overview

Sci(entific)-Compiler is an innovative software tool to program the Open FPGA of CAEN boards. It makes use of block diagrams instead of VHDL/Verilog firmware programming language to generate and compile a custom firmware, thus allowing to accelerate custom designs, even for non-expert FPGA users. SCI-Compiler is an automatic firmware generator that, starting from a graphical diagram, generates a firmware code that implements the required function. Moreover, SCI-Compiler is able to generate C++/Python example software code to be used in Windows and Linux for DAQ software implementation.

SCI-Compiler uses a prebuilt library set containing more than 100 blocks that implement complex function (MCA, Oscilloscope, Digitizer, TDC) commonly used in Physics applications.

What is Sci-Compiler
The increasing use of programmable logic devices in trigger and data acquisition systems makes clear that having a general purpose platform and technicians dedicated to the firmware development is becoming more and more important. The advantage of employing programmable logic devices with respect to standard logic modules (like NIM logic modules) is remarkable: a single programmable logic device includes the potentiality of hundreds of thousands of standard logic modules. For the technicians, who usually work with standard logic modules, the use of specific languages like VHDL or Verilog for the firmware development could represent a limitation in the spread of these powerful devices.

We introduce an innovative method to simplify the firmware development. This method is based on a graphical programming interface consisting of blocks specifically developed for nuclear physics applications. For instance, any trigger logic could be implemented by connecting specific blocks in the graphical interface, as easily as physically connecting NIM modules in a rack.

The SCI-Compiler software allows to develop both purely digital applications, exploiting blocks like scaler, counter, pattern matching, logic Analyzer and state machine, and analog processing applications, such as custom multichannel Analyzer using charge integration, trapezoidal filter, spectrum and oscilloscope blocks. In addition, the SCI-Compiler software provides the function to read and test the ASICs, enabling the user to develop a sequencer for the ASIC control.

The SCI-Compiler software focuses the attention only on the functional blocks of the application to be implemented and does not require a deep knowledge of the device in use, enabling the employment of programmable logic devices also to users who are not experts in firmware development.blank

For Beginners
SCI-Compiler SMART is a hardware + software kit for non-expert users who are approaching the open FPGA programming. The kit is provided to people not skilled with FPGA coding, with the exact purpose of evaluating SCI-Compiler capabilities and learn how to design custom firmware using the block-diagram method. It includes:

  • 1x DT1260, 2 Channel, 65 MS/s, 12 bit ADC unit with Open FPGA.
  • 1x SCI-Compiler Lite license working with the DT1260 unit only.

The combination of SCI-Compiler + basic hardware allows not only to learn FPGA coding with block-diagram method, but also to test the functionalities of the firmware on a real device.

Advanced Hardware
SCI-compiler has been designed to generate code for some particular hardware platform designed by CAEN. Presently, SCI-Compiler PRO license supports the following CAEN products:

  • DT5495V2495 Programmable Logic Units

CAEN, its licensors, and its and their affiliates disclaim all warranties, conditions, and representations (express, implied, oral, and written) with respect to the CAEN Software including without limitation all express, implied, and statutory warranties and conditions of any kind, such as title, non-interference with your enjoyment, authority, non-infringement, merchantability, fitness or suitability for any purpose (whether or not CAEN knows or has reason to know of any such purpose), system integration, accuracy or completeness, results, reasonable care, workmanlike effort, lack of negligence, and lack of viruses, whether alleged to arise under law, by reason of custom or usage in the trade, or by course of dealing.

CAEN does not warrant that the CAEN Software will operate uninterrupted or be error free or that defects are correctable or will be corrected.

Any service obtained using the CAEN Software is done at the End User’s own discretion and risk, and the End User will be solely responsible for any damage to his/her computer system or loss of data that results from the download and/or use of any such material or service.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, CAEN, its licensors, and its and their affiliates make no warranty that:

  1. the CAEN Software will operate properly;
  2. the CAEN Software will meet the End User’s system/technical requirements;
  3. the operation of the CAEN Software will be uninterrupted, bug free, or error free in any or all circumstances;

  1. Limitation of Liability

To the extent not prohibited by the applicable laws, in no event shall CAEN be liable for personal injury or any incidental, special, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, loss of data, business interruption, or any other commercial damages or losses, arising out of or related to the End User’s use of or inability to use the CAEN Software, however caused, regardless of the theory of liability (contract, tort, or otherwise) and even if CAEN has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

As mentioned in article 6 above, CAEN Software is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, “with all faults” and without warranty of any kind, therefore the End User acknowledges that the use of the CAEN Software shall be at its own risk and the End User waves any right to compensation for any kind of damage or loss directly or indirectly consequential to the use of the CAEN Software.

In no event shall CAEN’s total liability to the End User for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) exceed the total amount of the fees paid for the CAEN Software license.

Should a rotational backup of a system’s entire data set, including the CAEN Software programmers, be essential for a fast reactivation of the system following a complete breakdown, the End User may create backup copies in the required quantities. The pertinent system disks shall be marked accordingly. These backup copies may be used for archive purposes in connection with data backup only.

The End User will not modify the user guides, operating manuals and release notes made available by CAEN, if any. Such documentation may:

  1. only be used to support the End User’s use of the CAEN Software;
  2. not be republished or redistributed to any unauthorized third party;
  3. not be distributed or used to conduct training for which the End User, or any other party, receives a fee.

The End User shall take the necessary steps to prohibit unauthorized access to the CAEN Software and its documentation by third parties.

The original data media, as well as all backup copies, shall be stored in a secure place, safe from access by unauthorized third parties.

  1. Disclaimer of Warranties by CAEN

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws and regulations, the CAEN Software is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, “with all faults” and without warranty of any kind.

CAEN, its licensors, and its and their affiliates disclaim all warranties, conditions, and representations (express, implied, oral, and written) with respect to the CAEN Software including without limitation all express, implied, and statutory warranties and conditions of any kind, such as title, non-interference with your enjoyment, authority, non-infringement, merchantability, fitness or suitability for any purpose (whether or not CAEN knows or has reason to know of any such purpose), system integration, accuracy or completeness, results, reasonable care, workmanlike effort, lack of negligence, and lack of viruses, whether alleged to arise under law, by reason of custom or usage in the trade, or by course of dealing.

CAEN does not warrant that the CAEN Software will operate uninterrupted or be error free or that defects are correctable or will be corrected.

Any service obtained using the CAEN Software is done at the End User’s own discretion and risk, and the End User will be solely responsible for any damage to his/her computer system or loss of data that results from the download and/or use of any such material or service.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, CAEN, its licensors, and its and their affiliates make no warranty that:

  1. the CAEN Software will operate properly;
  2. the CAEN Software will meet the End User’s system/technical requirements;
  3. the operation of the CAEN Software will be uninterrupted, bug free, or error free in any or all circumstances;
  4. any defects in the CAEN Software can or will be corrected by CAEN.

The terms set forth herein will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws.

  1. Limitation of Liability

To the extent not prohibited by the applicable laws, in no event shall CAEN be liable for personal injury or any incidental, special, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, loss of data, business interruption, or any other commercial damages or losses, arising out of or related to the End User’s use of or inability to use the CAEN Software, however caused, regardless of the theory of liability (contract, tort, or otherwise) and even if CAEN has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

As mentioned in article 6 above, CAEN Software is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, “with all faults” and without warranty of any kind, therefore the End User acknowledges that the use of the CAEN Software shall be at its own risk and the End User waves any right to compensation for any kind of damage or loss directly or indirectly consequential to the use of the CAEN Software.

In no event shall CAEN’s total liability to the End User for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) exceed the total amount of the fees paid for the CAEN Software license.

Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, the foregoing limitations of liability shall apply only to the full extent permitted by the applicable law.

  1. Indemnification

The End User is solely responsible for compliance with agreements the End User has executed with third parties.

The End User agrees to indemnify and hold CAEN harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable legal fees, made by any third party in connection with or arising out of the End User’s use of the CAEN Software, the End User’s violation of any terms or conditions of the CAEN Software license and/or violation of applicable laws, or the violation of any rights of another person or entity.

  1. Term and Termination

The license granted to the End User is perpetual with reference to the version of the CAEN Software originally provided to the End User.

Notwithstanding with the above, the Parties acknowledge that:

  • the End User may terminate the CAEN Software license by discontinuing use of all or any of the CAEN Software and by destroying all copies of the applicable CAEN Software;
  • the license terminates automatically if the End User violates any terms of the EULA, if CAEN sends a written notice of termination to the End User and in all the other cases set forth in the Terms & Conditions.

After a termination, the End User shall immediately:

  1. cease any use of the CAEN Software;
  2. fully delete all CAEN Software, in particular the original files, any backup copies and any pertinent CAEN Software files installed on the End User’s devices;
  3. delete/destroy/return any documentation related to the CAEN Software.

  1. Applicable Law

This CAEN Software License and the relationship between the End User and the Licensor is governed by the laws of Italy and shall be interpreted accordingly.

Any dispute arising out of or in connection with this EULA shall be referred to and finally resolved by the Court of Florence, Italy.

The United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the CAEN Software License.

  1. Precedence

This EULA constitutes the entire understanding between the parties regarding the use of the CAEN Software. In the event of any conflict between the EULA and the Terms & Conditions of the CAEN Software, the Terms & Conditions will prevail.
