Known Issues

1. DAC Turn On. All DAC settings below a particular turn on point correspond to the same measured test point voltage (7.7-8 mV). Turn on point varies for different boards (typically around 400-600).

Line: 51 to 50
  3. Clock Feedthrough (CFT). Pulses from on board pulser contain an extra injected charge that comes from clock signal passing through analog switch. This "clock feedthrough" does not scale with DAC setting and is not expected to have a shape that is the same as that of the pulse. As a result, all pulses are a sum of the true pulse shape and this CFT offset, distorting the shape and affecting the linearity of the pulse height to DAC setting. This is particularly noticeable at the lowest DAC settings, where the CFT constitutes a significant fraction of the total pulse.

4. DAC Stuck/Misaligned. When powering up, or occasionally during operation, the DAC will get stuck in a bad operational state. This is indicated by the DAC readback function, which checks the equality of the SPI instruction that is sent and readback. If the following error comes up during data-taking, it is recommended to power cycle the board (resetting the DAC).
