Overview

The Mod. V1761 is a 1-unit wide VME 6U module housing a 2 Channel 10 bit 4 GS/s Flash ADC Waveform Digitizer with threshold Auto-Trigger capabilities.
Input dynamics is 1 Vpp (single ended or differential).
The DC offset adjustment (range ± 0.5V)by 16bit DACs allows a right sampling of a bipolar (Vin=± 0.5V) up to a full positive (Vin= 0 ÷ +1V)) or negative (Vin= 0 ÷ -1V) analog input swing without losing dynamic resolution.
The modules feature a front panel clock/reference In/Out and a PLL for clock synthesis from internal/external references. This allows multi board phase synchronizations to an external clock reference or to a clock Digitizer master board.
The data stream is continuously written in a circular memory buffer. When the trigger occurs, the FPGA writes further N samples for the post trigger and freezes the buffer that can be read either via VME or via Optical Link. The acquisition can continue without dead time in a new buffer.
Each channel has a SRAM Multi-Event Buffer divisible into 1 ÷ 1024 buffers of programmable size, with independent read-write access. Two sizes of the channel digital memory are available by ordering options: 7.2 MS/ch (mod. V1761/V1761B) and 57.6 MS/ch (mod. V1761C).
The trigger signal can be provided via the front panel input as well as via the VMEbus, but it can also be generated internally. The trigger from one board can be propagated to the other boards through the front panel Trigger Output.
An Analog Output allows to reproduce the sum of the input signals as well as the majority of the buffer occupancy.
The Modules VME interface is VME64X compliant and the data readout can be performed in Single Data Transfer (D32), 32/64 bit Block Transfer (BLT, MBLT, 2eVME, 2eSST) and 32/64 bit Chained Block Transfer (CBLT).
The boards houses a daisy chainable Optical Link able to transfer data at 80 MB/s, thus it is possible to connect up to eight ADC boards (64 ADC channels) to a single Optical Link Controller (Mod. A2818). Optical Link and VME access are internally arbitrated.

Software available (windows and Linux): CAEN provides drivers for all the different types of physical communication channels, a set of C and LabView libraries (CAENComm and CAENDigitizer), demo applications and utilities:

  • 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.
  • CAEN WaveDump: software console application that can be used to configure and readout event data from any model of the CAEN digitizer family and save the data into a memory buffer allocated for this purpose.
