Each AMC13 as shipped is a 3-board stack (T1, T2, T3). The serial number is set by soldered jumpers on the T2 board (8 bits). On AMC13XG the serial number is printed on the front panel label in decimal.

Information on newest boards (SN48 and larger) are now located in a new board database: VIEW link

[1] Software expects serial numbers below 48 to use LX150T Spartan chip; to support newer modules in these serial numbers would require updated software.

See AMC13PartNumbers and barcode labels for details on part numbers and barcode labels.

Production I -- 2014

Run of 50+15 boards with New T2. Modules beginning with S/N 51 have matching S/N on all 3 boards when initially assembled.

See Database for boards above S/N 48.

Notes on previous S/N 34:

Disassembled (prev at cornell) Won't power up? (Testing, 8/6/2013) Problem seems to be in T1 board. Swapped parts w/ SN 43 for testing. SN34 T2 w/ the SN43 T1 seems to work. SN34 T1 w/ SN43 T2 exhibiting same problems. (Currently disassembled in EDF 2/10/14)

Two more boards shipped to DESY and Rice in Nov 2012.


[1] Module delivered with two 8Gb/s HP SFP and one 160Mb/s low speed SFP, plus one TTC fiber and one high-speed fiber.

[2] Shipped with 160Mb/s low speed SFP only plus TTC and high-speed fibers

Version which is critical is the T2 (Spartan) as it provides the flash update interface. Version 6 (S6) is the first version with the "final" flash layout with golden (backup) configuration. Modules with a T2 version earlier than S6 can be updated first by programming S6 to flash address 0x0 (may require older software) and then using the current software to program the Header (0x0), Golden (0x100000), Spartan (0x200000), and Virtex (0x400000). One this is done, new firmware may be loaded from the flash by software command without power cycle.
