IPM Buffer Hardware Manual
- Public document
- The IPM Buffer module receives data from eight IPM QIE front end modules over fast serial optical links. The data is buffered and then read out through a standard 3.3 Volt PCI interface by a commercial PC. The difference in maximum input and output rates is approximately 10:1, so at least 10 seconds of data readout time are required for each second of data acquisition. The IPM Buffer is capable of sparsifying based on beam crossing and also incorporates diagnostics.
