Overview

The CAEN Mod. V1743 is a VME 6U module housing 16 Channel 12 bit 3.2 GS/s Switched Capacitor Digitizer, with 2.5 Vpp single-ended input dynamics, issued from the collaboration with CEA/IRFU & CNRS/IN2P3/LAL and based on SAMLONG chip. A programmable DAC on each channel allows for DC Offset adjustment in the ±1.25 V range.

The analog input signals are continuously sampled into the SAMLONGs (sampling intervals down to 312.5 ps) in a circular analog memory buffer (1024 cells). As a trigger signal arrives, all analog memory buffers are frozen and subsequently digitized with a resolution of 12 bits into a digital memory buffer. During analog to digital conversion process, the V1743 cannot handle other triggers (Dead Time: 115 us).

The memory buffer allows to store up to 7 full events for each cannel (1 event = 1024x12bit). The buffer can be read by VME bus or Optical Link simultaneously with write operation of successive events.

The module features front panel Clock Input and Output, as well as a PLL for clock synthesis from internal/external references. V1743 supports multi-board synchronization allowing all switched capacitor memories to be synchronized to a common clock source and ensuring Trigger time stamps alignment. Once synchronized, all data will be aligned and coherent across multiple V1743 boards

Each channel is equipped with an individual discriminator, with programmable threshold, which generates a trigger request when the input signal goes over threshold. The trigger requests from the channels are processed by the board to generate a common trigger causing all the channels to acquire an event simultaneously. The common trigger can also be provided externally via the front panel Trigger Input or via the software, for debug purposes, through VMEbus/Optical Link

V1743 houses VME (VME64X compliant) and Optical Link interfaces. The VME interface allows data transfers of 60 MB/s (MBLT64), 100 MB/s (2eVME), 160 MB/s (2eSST). The Optical Link supports transfer rate of 80 MB/s and offers Daisy chain capability. Therefore, it is possible to connect up to 8/32 ADC modules to a single Optical Link controller (Mod. A2818/A3818).

Mod. V1743 features an embedded Charge Mode, where the pulse integration window is defined by the user (high rates ~3.5 KEvents/s). This feature allows to perform on-line processing on detector signal directly digitized.

Some typical applications:

  • Precise characterization of high speed detectors (PMTs, SiPMs, APDs,…)
  • High Resolution Photon timing with MCP-PMTs

Software available (Windows and Linux):
CAEN provides drivers for all the different types of physical communication channels, a set of C libraries (CAENComm and CAENDigitizer) for Windows and Linux OS, as well as a control software tool for Windows:

  • CAENUpgrader: tool that allows the user to update the firmware of the digitizers, change the PLL settings, load, when requested, the license for the pay firmware and other utilities.
  • WaveCatcher: fully graphical program that implements an oscilloscope.

The End User may reproduce the CAEN Software only if such reproduction is strictly necessary for the use of the CAEN Software.

Necessary reproductions include the installation of the CAEN Software from the original system disk or from the downloaded installation archive on the mass memory of the hardware, as well as the loading of the CAEN Software into the main memory during CAEN Software operation.

Moreover, the End User may reproduce the CAEN Software for backup purposes. However, only one backup copy of the original system disk or the downloaded installation archive may be created and/or stored. Said copy must be marked as a backup.

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:

  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;

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.

  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.

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.
