Mike Watkins: The fitting code now works and has been used this week for machine studies involving the BSM. Have started to write some documentation, which will be placed on a TWIKI page.
Jamie Kern: Have been working on a parser code, which produces workable code and header files. Am currently validating its functionality, and in so doing have found a couple of problems. The next test will be made on the CBPM code.
Mark Palmer: After this one will need this further to the FLM and BSM code.
Devin Bougie: There has been a succefuil disk replacement on LNX180C
Hubert Schwarthoff: Currently fixing a bug in the CBI manager and working together with Greg on some problems with MPMnet (but no problems in vxputn, vxgetn, vuputn, vugetn). Also still working on constants files.
Greg Soltis: Next week is my last week here; will return around 1-Sep-2006. Have written guidelines as to how to use the MPMnet library, how to compile, build against it etc. Documentation will be on a TWIKI page.
Charlie Strohman: Will be absent the 2nd and the 4th week of June. Have been ordering more digital boards. We will also have another tigersharc license.
Mark Palmer: For the BSM23W, a shutter and a spare have been ordered. In terms of PC boards, we have 2 more of those in hand, which need to be made to work. We would like to try to install a shutter at BSM23W during the June shutdown.
Eugene Tanke: Have been participating in Machine Studies such as Ecloud experiments. Have validated code that operates the new shutter arrangement at BSM23E.
Tim Wilksen: COLDFIRE ethernet software basically works now; there are no more hangups in the system. What is needed next is a full blown test.
In the near future we will need the capabilty of doing BSM acquisition through the ethernet from lnx180c; we will need the ethernet communication software for this. The control functionality would remain through XBUS, but (large) data packets would go through ethernet.
BPM schedule for ERL: We will need to install about 4 BPMs (striplines) in R128 by early fall. Testing will be performed prior to this: we will be installing BPM hardware in the linac during the coming shutdown. The read-out electronics hardware will essentially be the same as what we use now in CESR.
Tim Wilksen: In view of ERL, we need to test the IOC, which already runs on the COLDFIRE with EPICS.
