Description

In #13118 we made a feature which allows us to track the chopper's pulse width with a hard-coded padding of 25%. This feature will allow us to specify what that padding should be (in either % or as a set amount of time) via the CLI.

History

#1 Updated by John Diamond about 4 years ago

  • % Done changed from 0 to 50
Added two parameters to vmeintGateWidthMonitorAdd that allow the user to define the padding added to the pulse length read from ACNET:
vmeintGateWidthMonitorAdd di, devId, padding_str, padding_perc_str
  • padding_str is a static amount of time that should be added to the pulse length read from ACNET, given in microseconds
  • padding_perc_str is a percentage of the pulse length read from ACNET that should be added, given as a decimal value (e.g. 0.25 = 25%)

Note: both values are floating point numbers that need to be passed in quotes from the command line

Untested - need to verify on nbeam.
