A large FPGA-based Data Acquisition Systems for JPET tomograph prototype is up and running!
The system consists of 9x TRBv3 modules running in 1x Master – 8x Slaves mode, collecting data from 384 photomultipliers, delivering signals to 1536 high-resolution TDC channels.
Generated data stream is forwarded into 3x 1Gb network interfaces of a server class rack computer. We are awaiting for the founds dedicated to network upgrade to 10Gb solutions.
Great hardware and software solutions allow to display data quality histograms constructed in the real time as well as storing data for further offline processing.
