| These are the up to date version of the PROTOCOLS used to transfer data between the Front End
Boards and the Collector/Broadcaster System and between the Broadcaster and the
rest of the Trigger System (L1 Trigger Manager(s), the L2 Pre-Processors via
the FIC, and the L3 VRBs). Nevertheless, this is also a "living document" and as such it never can be said that
it is the "final" version. It will evolved as we
have a better knowledge of the System capabilities and the Physics
FINAL documents reflects concensus reached at the Seattle Workshop.
After this we expect to have only changes in the firmware (what data where) but
no changes on hardware or Header/ Trailer Protocols. Please read carefully
because these are binding specifications: YOU MUST FOLLOW
these specifications in ALL designs!
to the Seattle Workshop and since, I received several questions/suggestions
from people interested in the performance of the CTT. I found that
several people ask the same questions, this make me think that the best way to
keep everybody aware of what it is going on will be to have a formal page
dedicated to Questions & Answers.
You will find this page as part of my Web-pages.
You can send me any Questions and/or Sugerencies at
