Updating Firmware in Digitizers and Triggers

From GammaSphere DAQ
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Some more notes about flashing digitizers or triggers:

  1. Log into dgs account on dgs1
  2. Get the *.bin from directory /Digitizer/MAIN_FPGA/Work11_DGS
    1. We have 4 flavors, MSTR_digitizer, SLAVE_digitizer, trigger_top and router_top
  3. copy to /home/dgs/tmadden/DGSDigFirmware or /home/dgs/tmadden/DGSTrigFirmware
    1. You can rename file to reflect the date compiled e.g. MSTR_digitizer_2020722.bin
  4. cd /home/dgs/tmadden/swWork/workspace/epicsClient/src
  5. issue following: java -classpath jca-2.3.5.jar:caj-1.1.9.jar:fpgasender.jar plotControl
  6. copy and paste below

epics.epics_init();
var fn0=new String("/home/dgs/tmadden/swWork/workspace/epicsClient/src/asynRecords.txt");
var fn1=new String("/home/dgs/tmadden/retfile.bin");
epics.connectPVs(fn0);
var digware=new String("/home/dgs/tmadden/DGSDigFirmware/MSTR_digitizer_20200722.bin");
var slvware=new String("/home/dgs/tmadden/DGSDigFirmware/SLAVE_digitizer_20200602.bin");
var mastware=new String("/home/dgs/tmadden/DGSTrigFirmware/trigger_top_20160626.bin");
var routware=new String("/home/dgs/tmadden/DGSTrigFirmware/router_top_20160601.bin");

-NOTE: Need to define add current name of master, slave digitizer bin files and trigger & router bin file names
-NOTE: If bin file name is wrong, program will still try to flash and result will be yellow fever.
-NOTE: The asynRecords.txt file defines the active crates. If you get a missing PV during setup, edit this file or better yet, make a new one and assign it instead.

If you get this far, you are now ready to flash the individual digitizers

  • To flash digitizer type epics.sendFpga(digware, fn1, 1, 0,1, 1, 1);
    • This line sends the firmware file defined in digware to the board.
    • The args of the function are defined as: epics.sendFgga(Firmwarename, ret file name, Crate num, Board num, erase, program, verify)
    • IN the above function, we send digware to crate 1, board 0 and erase, program and verify the fpga.
  • To Update the FPGA so it runs the new firmware. ON the dig boards there is a PV called GLBL:DIG:config_main_fpga that will reconfigure ALL digitizer FPGAs in DGS. This is convenient.
  • To update a single FPGA, say in VME1, we use VME01:DIG1:config_main_fpga. Simple write a 1 to these PVs to reconfig the FPGAs.
  • For the Trigger crate, a power cycle is needed but power cycle also works for digitizers too.

Below are cut and paste commands to use with DGS or DFMA

Trigger and Routers

For master trigger
epics.sendFpga(mastware, fn1, 0, 0,1, 1, 1);

For routers
epics.sendFpga(routware, fn1, 0, 1,1, 1, 1);
epics.sendFpga(routware, fn1, 0, 2,1, 1, 1);
epics.sendFpga(routware, fn1, 0, 3,1, 1, 1);

add these for FMA

epics.sendFpga(routware, fn1, 0, 4,1, 1, 1);
epics.sendFpga(routware, fn1, 0, 5,1, 1, 1);
