LHCb Off Detector Data Acquisition Board (2005-2018)
The TELL1 DAQ board has been retired with the end of the Run2 of LHC at the end of 2018
Maintenace of software and hardware is increasingly difficult, the main difficulties are :
Only Quartus 9 and lower can be used to program the EEPROM to load the firmware (current version is Quartus 18 (Dec. 2018)
TELL1 is a specific acquisition board developed for the requirements of the LHCb experiment and is used by essentially all sub-detectors in the experiment. The functionality of the board implemented is strongly driven by the fast event rate of 1.11MHz given by the maximal L0 acceptance rate.
Latest version: Release for v5.3 November 2018
