  • If you have any comments or suggestions for this project(function addition or improvement), please send an email to Hongyi Wu(wuhongyi@qq.com).
  • We will improve the Chinese/English manuals of the software as soon as possible. Currently, we mainly explain the use of the software through our demonstration.

About

This manual applies only to XIA LLC Pixie-16

Technical adviser:

Software Developer:

Principal author of the instruction:

Art director:

  • Yi Song 宋祎

The development of this program is supported by the following:

  • XIA LLC
  • Institute of Modern Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences(IMP)
  • China Institute of Atomic Energy(CIAE)
  • The University of Hong Kong(HKU)
  • Shandong University, Weihai(SDU)
  • ...

This program is applicable to XIA Pixie16 module, which supports the 100/250/500 MHz sampling rates(specifically, information about the module can be found in File->About in the graphics software) and supports up to 8-chassis synchronous operation, that maeans, at least 1600-channel signals are simultaneously collected. This package requires the CERN ROOT6 version and the resolution display above 1920x1080.

The program is designed to be compatible with the 100/250/500 MHz modules. Simply add the firmware location of the corresponding sample rate modules to cfgPixie16.txt. The program can automatically identify the module's type and load the corresponding firmware.

Currently we have tested most types of modules, so you can run the type of modules of our tested by default. To support other types, please contact XIA LLC to obtain the corresponding firmware or contact Hongyi Wu(wuhongyi@qq.com).

Update

  • The main control interface development based on the ROOT GUI is highly complex, which is difficult for users to modify now. It is not easy for users to develop their own version based on this program.
  • We are also developing acquisition software for online/offline analysis based on web control:
    • Django
    • ZeroMQ
    • JSROOT
    • ...
