  1. ETRAX CRIS architecture andXilinx FPGA Peter Zumbruch Experiment control systems group GSI (KS/EE)

  2. Embedded Target Platforms ETRAX CRIS Xilinx FPGA - Virtex4/5 Summary Overview ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  3. Aiming at two architectures ETRAX based CRIS architecture HADControl (aka: HADSHOPOMO) TRBv2 Experiments: HADES, CBM, Panda, … Xilinx FGPA: Virtex 4 (5) SysCore based Boards Experiment(s): CBM, … EPICS embedded ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  4. HADControl based on ETRAX 100LX MCM by AXIS Development of GSI’s Experimental Digital Electronic group (M.Traxler) HADControl (aka HADSHOPOMO (HADES SHOWER POWER MONITOR) ) “Multi-purpose control/monitor device developed for HADES […] is based on the ETRAX 100LX MCM4+16 and runs the "Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System, EPICS”. http://developer.axis.com/showroom ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  5. Current Applications: HADES complete DAQ upgrade, PET Readout Coimbra, PANDA, KVI,… TRBv2 (multi purpose DAQ board)based on ETRAX FS by AXIS http://www-linux.gsi.de/~traxler/GSIScientificReport2006_TRB/TRBv2_2006.pdf ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – EPICS-Shanghai, SSRF - Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  6. install embedded Linux on ETRAX chip CPU (axis.com) based front-end systems 2 step approach: Install DIM on ETRAX and use EPICS-DIM Interface to communicate via network with external EPICS clients or IOCs Suitable for development: DIM protocol also accessible via other controls software, i.e. LabVIEW, or CS, etc. But locally no (EPICS) logic (database, (fast) sequencing, alarming) provided Embedded EPICS on ETRAX CS ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  7. “DIM is a communication system for distributed / mixed environments. It provides a network transparent inter-process communication layer.” Protocol Distributed Information Management System Originally built for DELPHI http://dim.web.cern.ch/dim/ Some Properties: name based publisher/subscriber mechanism for services and commands Small / Tiny Many platforms No (not yet) inherent access security No logic Dynamic Used as network protocol for LabVIEW based CS Control system (GSI) … another Gateway to LabVIEW What is DIM? ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  8. install embedded Linux on ETRAX chip CPU (axis.com) based front-end systems 2 step approach: Install DIM on ETRAX and use EPICS-DIM Interface to communicate via network with external EPICS clients or IOCs Suitable for development: DIM protocol also accessible via other controls software, i.e. LabVIEW, or CS, etc. But locally no (EPICS) logic (database, (fast) sequencing, alarming) provided Install EPICS Embedded on ETRAX Provides all features of EPICS Local fast EPICS based logic, network independent By „turning the direction of the interface“ users may still see a DIM device, mimicked by EPICS using the EPICS – DIM interface Embedded EPICS on ETRAX CS   ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  9. HADControl Board (ETRAX 100LX MCM – linux-cris_v10) Temperature Sensor 1-Wire Bus Drift chamber HV-Interlock Control development: CAN-Bus Controller TRB (ETRAX FS – linux-cris_v32) Resistive Plate Counter – Threshold settings via SPI protocol Development: DAQ monitoring, FEE controls ETRAX Applications ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  10. Basis Environment Platform (KIP (University of Heidelberg)) providing several soft cores (PPC/MicroBlaze) with Linux (up-to-know µClinux) on it. based on VMware image, ready to use EPICS on Xilinx Virtex4/5 ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  11. Future Milestones Software milestones Implementation of gnu ppc cross compiler into EPICS build system (preferred) or implement EPICS IOC build into Xilinx Build Process or build EPICS on FPGA running gcc/make/perl on front-end Hardware milestones: Xilinx Evaluation Board ml403 Soft IOC Soft IOC with Inter-process communication Run-Control Nxyter / SysCore based board DAQ Board (CBM) Soft IOC (incl. IPC) IOC with access to “external” Hardware on-Board Configuration of Setups via EPICS Outlook on EPICS on Xilinx Virtex4/5 ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  12. Axis’ ETRAX EPICS on ETRAX’ cris architecture Connection to EPICS via ‘2 step approach’ ETRAX-DIM – EPICS-DIM-Interface – EPICS also suitable for other architectures (i.e. XYZ-DIM – EPICS) Outlook on Xilinx’ Virtex4/5 Different software solutions Hardware ml403 Nxyter / SysCore Summary http://wiki.gsi.de/Epics ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  13. Thank you for your attention. ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI

  15. Implementation as “device support module” Running DIM SERVER Providing read/write access to EPICS variables DIM CLIENT Interfacing DIM services and commands for single variables to EPICS process variables Successfully used for 5 weeks continous HADES beam time On demand String transport mode (DIM provides strings converted by the Interface to single data types, easier to handle by EPICS) Array and structures support More EPICS records EPICS DIM (protocol) Client EPICS-DIM Interface Device Server EPICS DIM Interface ETRAX CRIS architecture / Xilinx FPGA – Peter Zumbruch, GSI
