The DSP 6202 processor board for ATLAS calorimeters

PU board documentation and references

Note: TI issues updated versions of its data sheets, reference guides, and application notes. We try to keep track of these, by updating the references only page above. The full board documentation does not necessarily contain up-to-date references.

Sample DSP code

You may browse the existing code (also available through the CERN WWW server).
Warning: the code is under development. Please refer to the DSP6202 Software draft document.

Clock termination

We recommend to terminate the input clock and the FIFO clock on the motherboard, as close as possible to the corresponding connector. Another possibility is to put these terminations on the PU board. Then the input clock should be terminated to ground with a 50-60 Ohm resistor as shown in this picture (components side). The output FIFO clock should be terminated to ground with a 50-60 Ohm resistor as shown in this picture (back side).

Common Problems

I will try from now on to document various problems encountered while operating the ROD. This will be maintained thanks to you, the ROD users!
