See IT 6056 about IT setup of the Tucson/mountain testing.
|May 2016||Fernando, Bellesi, and Kellee performed testing at SkyTech. See notes|
|Jan 2016||Tracking and image analysis code running on the CMU (version 2.1) was released|
|Summer 2014||Switched to the new CMU, with the updated PCIExpress profibus card.|

> Dear Christian,After telecon with Andrea when I was on the mountain with Fernando and Mauro in Aug-2013, I sent this:
> We would like to give you a short summary about a possible upgrade
> for the LBC camera control system. The goal is to make easier the
> architecture of the cameras changing the present
> SkyTech-optical-fiber-CCD-controller data link with a standard
> Ethernet connection.
>> This is realized changing one of the controller board with an evolved one
> where the optical interface is replaced by a standard Ethernet module
> and a local PIC microcontroller.
> This solution improves the data transfer efficiency towards the
> LBTO archive using the SD memory of the new controller boards as
> data buffer for the acquired images. So built in fits images can be
> sent directly to the LBTO archive without any interaction with the
> CMU or other PCs.
> Each CCD controller will have its own I.P. address for its
> identification in the instrument network. In this new configuration
> the 4 win PCs are obsolete and can be removed from the LBC PCs
> architecture leaving the CMU (1 Linux PC) as the only
> PC for LBC.
> We have already funded the project for the prototype development.
> Skytech has just delivered the Hardware and we are beginning to
> test the prototype in the second half of the year and we plan to
> complete the lab commissioning by the end of the year.
> Skytech could produce 4 (+1 spare) boards during the first semester
> 2014. The total cost is 25000 euros.
> If you agree with the funding and schedule of the upgrade, we are
> available for installation of the new hardware during the 2014
> summer stop.
> Concerning the PC architecture, this implies to operate with the
> present 4PC+CMU configuration until summer 2014.

Ciao Fernando and Andrea, Thank you for the discussion this morning. I would like to make sure we all know what the status is and the next steps. Please let me know if any of this is incorrect. The status is that SkyTech is currently testing the new hardware. Fernando suggested they would be done by the end of 2013. I understand that there are a lot of outstanding issues to be determined, like the command set for the new DLL, image handling to the repository, tracking. These items should be worked out in the next few months. I would like to be included in some of that discussion, if possible. The next step is for INAF to produce a proposal to LBTO including the proposed hardware architecture (multiple NICs in single machine, CentOS machine?), the preliminary software architecture, resources required from INAF and LBTO, and proposed schedule. Does that sound reasonable? Ciao,But, we still have no proposal (11-Dec-2013).
