General Considerations

The CAMAC 166 module generates a single frame of MDAT information for incorporation onto the MDAT link. Frames are presently transmitted at a 720 Hz rate. Each frame, consisting of 28 bits of data, has a serial transmit time of 2.75 microseconds. Frames are generally transmitted in ascending order of Type Code: number and are transmitted at approximately ten microsecond intervals.

The data to be transmitted by the 166 module are generally received as parallel data at the module I/O connector. The module may also receive data for transmission from the CAMAC dataway. Custom PALs on each module adapt to the particular protocol of the instrumentation sourcing the data. DIP switches on the module provide the Type Code to be transmitted with the data and the version number of the module. Adjustment pots are provided on board to control the output symmetry and the delay from the 720 Hz event, TCLK $07, at which the transmission is initiated. Most 166 modules have their transmission initiated by an external 377 channel.

There are a total of four PALs on the 166 MDAT Transmitter module. 16603A.ABL and 16608A.ABL are common to all versions. PALs 16618n.ABL and 16652n.ABL are custom to implemented versions. A working spare for most implemented versions is available in the Controls Lab area on the first floor of the Booster East Tower.

Versions 1.n through 4.n

These first four versions of the 166 module are all supplied with data from TECAR at the A2 service building. TECAR multiplexes the four separate data words onto the sixteen input data lines and provides three additional control lines. A steering line is connected to CL1 of all associated 166 modules. This line, which has a LS374 driver, is high for programmed values and low for measured values. A strobe line for I values is connected to CL2 of all associated 166 modules. This is an active high pulse and has a 74128 driver. A strobe line for IDot values is connected to CL3 of all associated 166 modules. This is also an active high pulse and has a 74128 driver.

All data are refreshed at a 720 Hz rate comfortably between TCLK $07 events. Data are loaded into the transmitters at the $07 event and thereupon serially transmitted at ten microsecond intervals.

Version 13.0

Type Code: $52 - Tevatron Time at 150 GeV

This module presents 16 bits of data to the 166 as a signed number with full scale of $7FFF. The data is transmitted as an unsigned 16-bit value.

TEV $BE N23 (MDAT04)
TEV $BE N16 (MDAT12)
Unique PAL(s): 16618M.ABL 16652I.ABL

This module generates the serial transmission for Tevatron State and time of day.

The data for the TC$03 and TC$04 transmission are sourced from the CAMAC dataway and are set by the TEVA frontend.

The data for the TC$12 transmission are sourced from the CAMAC dataway and are set at the same time as PA1028, Sequencer. The module driver presents 16 bits of data to the C166.

Input data are latched immediately after the assertion of F16 and are loaded into the transmitter 250 nanoseconds thereafter. The transmission is nominally 220 microseconds after TCLK event $07. See note below.

Because the digitize and transmission frequencies are asynchronous, the module loads the transmitter and triggers the transmission immediately thereafter (every 1.4ms). If a new set of data is available from CAMAC during the period from 500ns before the load of the transmitter until the trigger for the transmission, the new data will be ignored. External data input is not an allowable function for this module.

The TC$03 transmission is launched nominally 5 microseconds after an external trigger provided by a 377 card in TEV $BF slot 21 (G:TC03D). Delay on the module from $07 to beginning of transmission is set to 156 microseconds.

The TC$04 transmission is launched nominally 5 microseconds after an external trigger provided by a 377 card in TEV $BF slot 21 (G:TC04D). Delay on the module from $07 to beginning of transmission is set to 166 microseconds.

The TC$12 transmission is launched nominally 5 microseconds after an external trigger provided by a 377 card in TEV $BF slot 21 (G:TC12D). Delay on the module from $07 to beginning of transmission is set to 217 microseconds.

Module Location: TEV $BF N5 (MDAT13)
MI $F3 N5 (MDAT53)
Unique PAL(s): 16618N.ABL 16652H.ABL

This module generates the serial transmission for Tevatron RF Anode Program and also for the Tevatron Low Beta Program. The data for these transmissions are sourced by an adjacent CAMAC 468 module in $F0 N3 and a CAMAC 467 module in $BF N3,4. The 468 generates an analog waveform (T:APG) as a function of time and digitizes it at a 1 kHz rate. The 467/8 module presents 16 bits of data to the C166, unsigned and left justified, with a Strobe line. The Strobe is active low, sourced by a 74F3037 driver, and is wired to the CL1 input of the C166 module. 74HCT541 drivers source the data.

Input data and the CL1 input are terminated with 1K ohms. Input data is latched immediately after the assertion of CL1 and is loaded into the transmitter 250 nanoseconds thereafter. The transmission is normally 4 microseconds after an external trigger provided by a 377 card in MI $F3 slot 17 (T:TC53D). Delay from $07 to beginning of transmission is set at 103 (0x67) microseconds.

Full scale for the transmitted parameter of Tevatron RF Anode Program is 10V. The LSB of the 16-bit word is valued at 152.5925 millivolts. These data are transmitted as an unsigned positive integer.

Because the digitize and transmission frequencies are asynchronous, the module loads the transmitter and triggers the transmission immediately thereafter (every 1.4ms). If a new set of data is available from the 468 during the period from 500ns before the load of the transmitter until the trigger for the transmission, the new data will be ignored. When using CAMAC to write data, the data will load at 720 Hz, the same as the transmitter and the trigger, and no data will be dropped.

Version 16.0 OBSOLETE, now MECAR generated at MI60N rack MI60202

Type Code: $55 - Main Ring Programmed I Prime LSW
Module Location: (WAS) MR $A2 N21
Unique PAL(s): 16618I.ABL 16652D.ABL

This module generates the serial transmission for Main Ring Programmed I Prime LSW (Least Significant Word) in IEEE floating point format. Programmed I Prime is the difference of Main Ring Programmed I and the Tevatron Feed Forward term. A VMIVME2510B module in a nearby VME crate sources the data for this transmission. The 2510B is a TTL I/O module. The data it gets is digitized at a 1.44 kHz rate. The 2510B module presents 16 bits of data to the 166 with Select and Enable lines. The Select is active high, sourced by a 74AS645 driver, and is wired to the CL1 input of the 166 module. 74AS645 drivers source the data.

Input data, CL1 and CL2 are terminated with 1K ohms. Input data is latched 2 microseconds after the assertion of CL1 and is loaded into the transmitter 200 nanoseconds thereafter. The transmission is nominally 170 microseconds after TCLK Event $07.

This transmission is launched nominally 140 hundred microseconds after TCLK event $07. Delay on the module from $07 to beginning of transmission is approximately 135 microseconds.

For safety considerations, the transmitter is always loaded at the occurrence of the 720 Hz clock event - even though the data may not be fresh.

This module generates a fake serial transmission for Main Injector Intensity in order to make the 453 and 465 modules work where there is no MDAT signal available. There are no input data for this module.

Construction Details:

  1. Wire U2 pin 1 to U3 pin 14.
  2. Wire U2 pin 2 to CAMAC I/O pin 26R
