Release Notes

Full CHANGELOG

Changes since v1.2.11:

  • [microDXP] Extend preset run limits up to 48 bits (from 32 bits) for supported devices.
  • [microDXP] Don't stop the run when reading gain mode or gain trim.
  • [microDXP] Add special run data snapshot_mca and snapshot_statistics (and corresponding lengths).
  • [microDXP] Validate parset value and return an error if out of range.
  • [microDXP] Added board operation get_peaking_times to return all peaking times.
  • [microDXP] Fixed an error switching between serial and USB2 microDXP boards.
  • [microDXP] Added check to acquisition value "preamp_value" range, reset value to maximum allowed if out-of-range.
  • [microDXP] Added special run "adjust_offsets" and acquisition value "auto_adjust_offset" for ADC offset control.
  • [microDXP] Added support for run data "sca" readout, the availability can be confirmed with "get_board_features" board operation, BOARD_SUPPORTS_UPDATED_SCA bit, see handel_constants.h for a list of board features.
  • [microDXP] Fixed an error in variable gain calculation.
  • [microDXP] Scale acquisition values "sca_time_off" and "sca_time_on" to microseconds.
  • [Mercury] Added board operation get_usb_version.
  • [Mercury] Removed unsupported serial number readout.
  • [Saturn] Fixed SCA readout.
  • [STJ] Added a "bias_dac_enable" acquisition value to denote the STJ Bias DAC disable status.
  • [STJ] Updated limit for maximum number_mca_channels.
  • Removed dynamic configuration functions from the exported API. They are only needed for internal initialization of Handel data structures and their use could potentially make the system unstable if used after starting up. Modification to system configuration can be safely done by loading a new configuration file with xiaLoadSystem, then calling xiaStartSystem. See the CHANGELOG for the list of affected functions.
  • Removed the deprecated functions xiaFitGauss and xiaFindPeak.
  • Removed several unused structs and functions from Xerxes.

Handel 1.2.11 (2015-11-18)

Full CHANGELOG

Changes since v1.2.7:

  • [microDXP] Added sample code and INI files to the source release.
  • [microDXP] Support for 80MHz base clocks.
  • [microDXP] Support for starting the system with multiple USB2 devices.
  • [microDXP] Fixed the decay time calculation for microDXP Rev G and earlier.
  • Added a Linux environment to the scons build.
  • [microDXP] Added the microDXP rev H product ID to Linux usb search.
  • [microDXP] Added udxp source files to the source release. Build with --no-udxps --no-xw.
  • [usb2] Fixed Linux USB2 to clean up if the initialization does not completely succeed.

Handel v1.2.7 (2015-08-10)

Full CHANGELOG

Important changes

  • [Saturn] Added back support for USB1 and EPP Saturn.

  • [microDXP] Moved execution of the set acquisition value function to xiaSetAcquisitionValues, up from BoardOperation "apply". This will make the microDXP behave the same as other XIA devices.

Deprecation notices

  • [microDXP] The run data all_statistics is now deprecated, replaced by module_statistics_2.
