Abstract:

VME system of the Resistive Plate Chamber (RPC) electronics for the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment is described in this paper. A 9U VME RPC trigger module (RTM) is designed to process coincidence signals coming from front end cards (FECs), to generate local triggers and send them to FECs to select the hit data from RPC detector, to report trigger information to a master trigger system and receive cross triggers from the master trigger system. Another 9U VME readout module is designed to collect data from all FECs, to send out configurations to FECs, and to transmit collected hit data to the data acquisition system via VME bus. Test results prove that the VME system is capable of treating a maximum data rate (2.2 MB·s-1 ), without data loss.
