A dedicated Parameters Input Description file (pid extension) is attempted by RHB to read data from the FASTER DAQ. This pid file can be edited and relies on a very simple structure like that :

faster_label is a number related to a detector. We decided to use this convention:

  • 0001 - 0999 -> DSP data (RF, TREF, QDC1-4, ADC1)
  • 1001 - 1999 -> Counter data (RF_COUNT, QCOUNT, ACOUNT)
  • 2001 - 2999 -> Oscillogram data (OSC)

faster_type is the type of the data. Here is a list of availaible faster_type depending of the modules you are using in your FASTER system:

Pass your mouse over the faster_type, you will see all the raw parameters generated by RHB.
