HSI - Generation of Data


Future hadron collider experiments present severe problems in moving and storing data at all levels of the trigger and data acquisition chain and it is essential that these aspects are tested at an early stage, well before the start of the collider operation or the availability of detector modules. Hardware description languages can be used to provide models of proposed systems and to simulate system performance, but these models, if they are sufficiently detailed, run at many orders of magnitude slower that reality and it must be shown that they accurately simulate the performance of the hardware. Information gained using a hardware data generator can be used to refine the model; it can test the architecture at realistic rates and can be used for debugging the architecture during the lifetime of the experiment.
