Development of data acquisition firmware for Hamamatsu S10420 CCD.
We are using a Spartan 6 based FPGA board.
The detector board is custom developed and tested (currently in prototype stage).
The custom IP (Verilog )was developed for a different detector(Toshiba) and need to updated for Hamamatsu S10420 detector.
The work involve writing Verilog code to generate clock signals for detector and synchronize it with the ADC (250kHz, 16 bit, SPI).
The results of the data acquisition (after ADC) are placed in DRAM, read from Microblaze and send to LAN. PC test client for communication and testing is available.
