Application-Notes Application-Notes Multichannel Hierarchical

In the new version of Sci-Compiler (>2024.3.x) is no more mandatory to place all the readout and configuration elements in the top page of the design.

You can place registers, oscilloscope, histogram, and other readout elements in the sub-designs and the compiler will automatically connect them to internal readout buses.

This feature allows you to create more complex designs with multiple sub-designs and to keep the top page clean and organized.

Have a look at the video below to see how to use this new feature and learn how easy it is to convert an existing design to use hierarchical readout scheme.

In this instructional video, we delve into the transformative process of converting a flat design, where the entire logic and readout elements were previously duplicated and placed on the top sheet, into a refined, two-channel hierarchical structure.

By adopting this approach, channel-specific elements are now neatly organized within the subdesign sheet, streamlining both design clarity and functionality.

The application we explore captures analog signals from the two channels of the DT1260 and employs a trigger block with hysteresis to accurately identify signal pulses. The digital LEMO outputs are configured to generate a pulse when the detected signal crosses predefined thresholds.

Additionally, the use of two oscilloscopes is showcased, allowing for the real-time monitoring of input signals, thus facilitating the precise selection of threshold levels for optimal signal detection.
