High Level System Diagram:
Wire Diagram for the top two drift tube modules: (The bottom two layers will have an identical configuration.)
The high level diagram roughly shows the envisioned data flow. We have more or less resolved what the information is going to look like at each stage of the system, and we are going to produce more detailed diagrams of the subsystems as we work on them. The wire diagram shows a potentail solution to our connection dilemma. If anyone has any suggestions of how to improve this feel free to let us know.
I have made some adjustments to the high level system diagram to make it more clear. I should also clarify that in the previously posted wiering diagram the ribbon cable traces represent both a signal and ground line that will conect to the break out box. Also, only the top 2 layers are drawn so an additional 3 breakout boxs and VHDCI to D-sub cables will be needed in addition to the ones shown.
