On 10/19/2015, we confirmed that we could (nearly) eliminate the chirping problem at MicroBooNE. This was done by changing the leakage current setting on the ASIC's from 100 pA to 500 pA. The solution followed hardware tests at BNL lead by Hucheng Chen, motivating a test using the MicroBooNE DAQ. Follow-up analysis by Mike Mooney lead to the discovery that this change can reduce the chirping by a factor of 50 (to near-negligible levels, affecting 0.2% of channels per event on average).
