There are two new setups for the central trigger system available, both based on a Trb3sc:
a stand-alone version with 20 TDC channels that allows a fully independent read-out system for one Padiwa board. A 32 channel version might be available on request. One SFP allows to connect further front-end boards.
a CTS to connect up to 8 front-ends boards. This requires a SFP-AddOn-v2 and an adapter board with 9 RJ connectors (shown in the photo). The front-ends can be connected directly with an optical fiber and one RJ-45 cable - no additional fan-out for the reference time is needed. It allows provides two inputs on each RJ connector to feed back trigger signals from the front-ends to the CTS.
A 16 channel 1:4 fan-out board, compatible to our usual 40-pin signal cables. The input is either on a 40-pin connector or on pin-header. Outputs are in parallel on two 40-pin connectors and 2 pin-headers.
The latest family member of our TRB group: Trb5sc featuring a single ECP5 FPGA for up to 32 high-resolution TDC channels or 64 general purpose LVDS I/O. The form factor is new, including an "inline" AddOn board (here: a new "4conn" AddOn). Together with the AddOn the form factor is the same as a TRB3sc without AddOn and the boards fit into the same crates.
