Notes.
-
SHB stands for Sundance High-speed Bus.
-
RSL stands for Rocket Serial Link.
-
Comport denotes an 8-bit communication port following the TI C4x standards.
-
SMT8101 is a PCI system to be plugged in a PC. The only software
requirement is to have 3L Diamond server installed.
Precautions
In order to guarantee that Sundance’s boards function correctly and to protect the
module from damage, the following precautions should be taken:
-
They are static sensitive products and should be handled accordingly.
Always place the modules in a static protective bag during storage and
transition.
-
When operated in a closed environment make sure that the heat
generated by the system is extracted e.g. a fan extracting heat or blowing
cool air. Sundance recommends and uses PAPST 12-Volt fans (Series
8300) producing an air flow of 54 cubic meters per hour (equivalent to 31.8
CFM). Fans are placed so they blow across the PCI bus.

Control and Configuration Comports

The SMT395-VP is the module that controls all operations of the system, starting
from configuring SMT391-VP and SMT381-VP FPGAs (Xilinx Virtex-II Pro VP30-6)
using configuration ports (Comports).
The data path is clearly as follows: Analog inputs are fed into the ADC module that
converts it into digital samples. The data flow is then passed onto the DAC module
via RSL links (2.5 Gbits/s – SMT526 and SMT522)) that transforms into Analog
signals. Data streams go through 2 FPGAs where processing can be added.
Samples are originally coded on 8-bits by the ADCs, sent over the RSLs and
converted into a 14-bit format samples to match the DAC data input as follow:
Sample_DAC_14_bits = Sample_ADC_8_bit & "100000"
The SMT391-VP has an on-board VCO that is used to generate a 1GHz clock, which
is passed to the SMT381-VP so ADC and DAC channels are receiving the same
Version 1.3

sampling clock. It also makes the system stand alone with ADC and DAC channels
synchronised.
As SMT381-VP and SMT391-VP have both Virtex-II Pro FPGAs (XC2VP30-6),
processing can be added on the way.
The DSP can also be report information through Comports (bidirectional) such as the
temperature monitoring of both DAQ modules (SMT391-VP and SMT381-VP) or to
capture blocks of data via the SHB Bus (SMT511 and SMT516) to the DSP.

Hardware installation.
Here are the basic steps to follow to install an SLB module with its mezzanine. As an
example, the SMT381-VP (the SMT391-VP follows the same procedure), which is the
combination of the SMT338-VP30-6 (SLB Base Module) and the SMT381
(Mezzanine Module). Please note that photographs don’t necessarily match exactly
with the SMT8101 systems but refer to similar products.
1 – Place the SMT395-VP on TIM site 1 of the carrier board (SMT310Q).

b – Then fit four M2 nuts on each screw.
c – Place the SMT338-VP on the second site (SMT395-VP already on first
site) on the SMT310Q and fit two metal pillars (3.3 Volts).
d – Place the SMT381 on top of the SMT338-VP. Make sure that both
modules fit firmly.
e – Fit two M2 nuts on the Nylon screws and two M3x4 screws in the 3.3V
pillars.
3 – Connect CommPort 1 of the SMT395-VP to CommPort 3 of the SMT338-VP
(T1C1 to T2C3) via an FMS cable at the back of the SMT310Q. Also make the
connection T1C2 to T3C3)
Version 1.3

4 – Connect SHBA on the SMT395-VP to SHBA on the SMT338-VP via the SMT516.
5 – Connect SHBB on the SMT395-VP to SHBB on the SMT338-VP via the SMT511
(SHB to SHB cable).
6 – Connect J2 and J3 (SMT381-VP) to an oscilloscope or other system of display
via MMBX-BNC cables.
7 – Place the carrier board in the host system and power up the PC and a fan to cool
down the system.
8 – Connect a signal (0.36 Volts peak-to-peak) to J1 and J2 (SMT391-VP).

The following picture shows the CommPort connection at the back of the SMT310Q.
Note that the FMS are ‘twisted’, i.e. one end should be blue and the other should
show silver pins. (T1C1 to T2C3 and T1C2 to T3C3).

Software applications.
3L application.
In a sub-folder labelled 3L (directory SMT6600\Systems\SMT8101), you will find a C
(SMT8101.c), a configuration (SMT8101.cfg) and a make (nmake) files.
In a DOS prompt window, simply type nmake to generate the 3L application file,
which can be loaded into the SMT395-VP30 by using the 3L Server (3L Diamond
needs to be installed first).
This application allows the user to execute simple commands such as configuring the
ADC (output format and scale), the clock synthesizers, clock routing, capturing data,
etc.
Description of the functions in the test software menu.
The 3L application provided with the system allows the following option. Some will
prompt for a value.
“Configure the FPGA of the SMT391-VP”
This command is used to reprogram the SMT338-VP (second TIM site - SMT391-VP)
FPGA with a different/new bitstream.
“Configure the FPGA of the SMT381-VP”
This command is used to reprogram the second SMT338-VP (second TIM site SMT381-VP) FPGA with a different/new bitstream.
“Retrieve configuration of both FPGAs”
This command is used once the FPGAs have already been configured and a reset
has occurred. It sends an ‘END KEY’ (please refer to SMT338-VP User Guide) to
retrieve the FPGA configurations previously loaded.
Version 1.3

“Start the SMT391-VP”
This command sends all setting necessary to the SMT391-VP.
“Start the SMT381-VP”
