The states "Private Request 1..3" have the same priority as "Ready". They are never internally generated by the AMC13 but are passed on if received from connected AMC cards in the crate.

The state "DAQ Overflow Warning" indicates that the AMC13 has an impending buffer overflow and that simultaneously the DAQ output link has asserted the busy (backpressure) signal.

The states marked (2018) were recently added and must be explicitly enabled by setting bit 9 in T1 register 1 (tentatively named CONF.ENABLE_WARNING_DUE_TO_DAQ_TTS in the AMC13 address table). These features were added in about firmware version 0x6061 (0x2261).

 Any time the AMC13 is not in run mode (such as after power up) the AMC13 sends state "0100" (busy).
