|TUPA47||Upgrade from ADCs with Centrally Scheduled Triggers to Continually Triggered Waveform Digitizers||452|
The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) control system includes many data channels that are timed and flavored, i.e., users can specify the species of beam and time within the beam pulse at which data are reported. The legacy LANSCE control system accom-plished this task by queuing up application software-initiated requests and scheduling Analog to Digital Con-verter (ADC) readout with custom programmable time-delay gated and multiplexed Remote Information and Control Equipment (RICE). This year we upgraded this system to a new Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) system that includes signal ded-icated waveform digitizer. An appropriate subset of the data is then returned as specified by each client. This is made possible by improvements to EPICS software, a Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Mezzanine Card (FMC) based ADC and a COTS VPX FPGA card with EPICS embedded on a soft-core processor. This year we upgraded over 1200 waveform channels from RICE to the new TDAQ (Timed/flavored Data Acquisition) system.
