  • Page 89 This function creates and initializes a channel group. A channel group allows you to issue commands to several HP E1433A channels at once, simplifying system setup. The state of an individual HP E1433A channel that is in more than one channel group, is determined by the most recent operation performed on any group to which this channel belongs.
  • Page 90: Multiple-module/mainframe Measurements

    The interface library for the HP E1433A is designed to allow programming of several channels from one or several distinct modules, as if they were one entity. Each HP E1433A module has up to 16 channels. The library may control up to a maximum of 255 HP E1433A modules (8160 channels).
  • Page 91: Possible Trigger Line Conflict

    Possible Trigger Line Conflict The following describes a scenario where HP E1433A modules might conflict and prevent a proper measurement. The conditions allowing the conflict are complex but must be understood by the user.
  • Page 92: Managing Multiple-mainframe Measurements

    The C-Language Host Interface Library Managing Multiple-mainframe Measurements In a single mainframe measurement, the HP E1433A communicates with other HP E1433As through the TTLTRG lines. However, when using the VXI-MXI bus extender modules, the TTLTRG lines, which carry the group synchronization pulse and sample clock, are extended only in one direction.
  • Page 93 Locate the channels performing channel triggering in Mainframe A. Locate the module with the shared sample clock in Mainframe A. If you do not use a groupID with the call e1432_read_data(), empty the HP E1433As’ FIFOs in Mainframe B before Mainframe A. In other words, do not empty the FIFOs in Mainframe A unless you have emptied the FIFOs in Mainframe B.

    Another TTL Trigger line is designated to carry the sample clock to all modules. This shared sample clock may come from any HP E1433A module in Mainframe A or from an external signal routed through the Slot 0 Commander in Mainframe A.
  • Page 96: Measurement Process

    Only one HP E1433A is required to pull the Sync/Trigger line low. In a system with only one HP E1432A, the Sync/Trigger line is local to the module and not is routed to a TTL TRIGGER line on the VXI back plane.
  • Page 97: Parameter Settings

    For example, changing blocksize, a module-dependent parameter, for input channel 3 will also change the block size for all other channels in the same HP E1433A module as channel 3. When possible, parameters are written to the hardware as soon as they are received.

  • Page 99: Register-based Vxi Devices

    The HP E1433A holds the Sync/Trigger line low as long as it is actively collecting data. In overlap block mode the HP E1433A stops taking data as soon as a block of data has been collected, including any programmed pre- or post-trigger delays.
  • Page 100: Arm And Trigger

    HP E1433A User's Guide The C-Language Host Interface Library Arm and Trigger This section explains some terminology relating the the “Arm” and “Trigger” steps in the measurement loop. As an example a measurement might be set up to arm at a certain RPM level and then subsequently trigger at an external event corresponding to top dead center (TDC).
  • Page 101: Hp E1433a Triggering

    Note that for e1432_set_auto_trigger() the setting E1432_MANUAL_ARM really means “don’t auto trigger” not “expect a manual trigger”. For single HP E1433A systems, the TTL trigger signal is not connected to the VXI backplane. For multiple HP E1433A systems, the e1432_init_measure() function connects the HP E1433A trigger lines to the VXI backplane, and at that point, your selection of which TTL trigger lines through e1432_get_ttltrg_lines() is relevant.
  • Page 102: Data Transfer Modes

    HP E1433A User's Guide The C-Language Host Interface Library Data Transfer Modes The HP E1433A can be programmed to use either of two data transfer modes: overlap block mode and continuous mode. To help explain these modes we will first describe block mode.
  • Page 103 HP E1433A User's Guide The C-Language Host Interface Library Limit on Queuing of Data In overlap block mode, a number of trigger events may be queued up before the host reads the data for those triggers. The host may get further and further behind the data acquisition.
  • Page 104: Hp E1433a Interrupt Behavior

    The HP E1433A VXI module can be programmed to interrupt a host computer using the VME interrupt lines. VME provides seven such lines, and the HP E1433A module can be told to use any one of them (see e1432_set_interrupt_priority). The HP 1432A can interrupt the host computer in response to different events.
  • Page 105 The C-Language Host Interface Library HP E1433A Interrupt Handling To make the HP E1433A module do the interrupt, both a mask and a VME Interrupt line must be specified, by calling e1432_set_interrupt_mask and e1432_set_interrupt_priority respectively. Once the mask and line have...
  • Page 106: Data Gating

    The C-Language Host Interface Library Host Interrupt Handling When the HP E1433A asserts the VME interrupt line, SICL will cause the specified interrupt handler to get called. Typically the interrupt handler routine will read data from the module, and then re-enable HP E1433A interrupts with e1432_reenable_interrupt.
  • Page 107: Hp E1433a Parameters

    Setting such a parameter for a channel that doesn’t make sense will result in an error. At the start of a measurement, the HP E1433A firmware sets up all hardware parameters, and ensures that the input hardware is settled before starting to take data.

  • Page 179 HP E1433A User's Guide Register Definitions Data Ready: A one (1) indicates that there is at least one word (32 bits) of data available in the Send Data register. A zero (0) indicates that there is not valid data in the Send Data register.
  • Page 180 Offset register. Port Control Register: This register is used to override the Local Bus control of the device. (This applies to HP E1433A modules that are equipped to use Local Bus). It has the following format:...
  • Page 181 HP E1433A User's Guide Register Definitions Page Map Register: This read/write register defines the internal location of the movable window into the device’s DSP bus. (This 512 kB window begins at 512 kB into the device’s A24 registers.) The eight least significant bits of the Page Map register are the page number.
  • Page 182 HP E1433A User's Guide Register Definitions IRQ Status Register: This read-only register indicates the reason for asserting the VME Bus interrupt. The format of the data is identical to that of the Status/ID word returned by an interrupt acknowledge (IACK) cycle. It differs from the IACK cycle in that the IACK cycle will clear the status bits and cause the de-assertion of the IRQ line.

    HP E1433A User's Guide Register Definitions Parameter 1-7 Registers: These are 32-bit RAM locations used to pass parameters along with commands to the device or query responses from the device. See the following section regarding D16/D08 access of 32-bit registers and the communication protocol.
  • Page 184: Command/response Protocol

    HP E1433A User's Guide Register Definitions Command/Response Protocol The Command/Response protocol uses the following resources: Command/Query Response register implemented as a general purpose RAM Three parameter registers implemented as a general purpose RAM Additional A24 accessible RAM contiguous with the parameter registers The Command Ready, Query Response Ready, Err*, and Done bits of the Status register.
  • Page 185 HP E1433A User's Guide Register Definitions In order to avoid contention and/or invalid data reads, there are certain rules that must be observed: A controller must not write to any of the RAM registers when Command/Parameter Ready is false. The DSP must not write to any of the RAM registers when either Command/Parameter Ready or Query Response Ready is true.

  • Page 187: Dsp Bus Registers

    HP E1433A User's Guide Register Definitions DSP Bus Registers There are two 32-bit registers in the DSP bus address space. The VXI FPGA does not assert TA* when these registers are accessed. 200A DSP Command Register 200B Boot Register Note that these registers appear multiple times in the memory map, since only the address lines A31-30, A17-13, A9-8, and A3-0 are used for decoding.
  • Page 188 HP E1433A User's Guide Register Definitions DSP Command Register: This register is used to assert VXI interrupts and toggle various status register bits. Many of the bits in this register are grouped into related Clock and Value pairs. This allow the bits to be modified independently with single register writes.
