Adaptation of Sonix+ Software Package

Publications, 11 March 2022

We offer to your attention a preprint “Adaptation of the Sonix+ Software Package to Work with DAQ Controllers DeLiDAQ-2 and Digitizer N6730 by CAEN” P10-2022-5 published by the JINR Publishing Department. The authors are Kirilov A.S., Murashkevich S.M.

Before the use of DeLiDAQ-2 controllers and Digitizer N6730 on the IBR-2 reactor instruments, the main form of DAQ output data was spectral distributions of intensities in matrix form, which, in particular, was used in the Sonix$+$ software package for online visualization. Due to the fact that output data from considered controllers are available only in the events list form, the construction of spectral distributions (histogramming) must be done by programs.The work is devoted to adaptation of the complex for use of the controllers specified, algorithms of data histogramming for them, as well as to tests results carried out at the GRAINS instrument (beam 10 of the IBR-2) in October 2021 consideration.

The investigation has been performed at the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics.
