ATLAS Level-1 Calorimeter Trigger: Subsystem Tests of a Jet/Energy-sum Processor Module
2004 (English)In: IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, ISSN 0018-9499, E-ISSN 1558-1578, Vol. 51, no 5, 2356-2361 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The ATLAS Level-1 Calorimeter Trigger consists of a Preprocessor, a Cluster Processor (CP), and a Jet/Energy-sum Processor (JEP). The CP and JEP receive digitized trigger-tower data from the Preprocessor and produce trigger multiplicities and total and missing energy for the final trigger decision. The trigger also provides region-of-interest information for the Level-2 trigger and intermediate results of the data acquisition system for monitoring and diagnostics by using Readout Driver modules. The JEP identifies and localizes jets, and sums total and missing transverse energy information from the trigger data. The Jet/Energy Module (JEM) is the main module of the JEP. The JEM prototype is designed to be functionally identical to the final production module for ATLAS and to have the full number of channels. Three JEM prototypes have been built and successfully tested. Various test vector patterns were used to test the energy summation and the jet algorithms. Data communication between adjacent JEMs and all other relevant modules of the JEP has been tested. Recent test results using the JEM prototypes are discussed.
