Subject: funny timing setup on the LSC 

While measuring the Piezo Jena noise tonight we noticed that the LSC timing is setup strangely.

Instead of using the Fiber Optic Sander Liu Timing board, we are just using a long 4-pin LEMO cable which comes from somewhere in the cable tray. This is apparent in the rack pictures (1X3) that Kiwamu has recently posted in the Electronics Wiki. I think all of our front ends are supposed to use the fiber card for this. I will ask Jay and Alex what the deal is here - seems like to me that this can be a cause for timing noise on the LSC.

We should be able to diagnose timing noise between the OMC and the LSC by putting in a signal in the OMC and looking at the signal on the LSC side. Should be a matlab script that we can run whenever we are suspicious of this. This is an excellent task for a new visiting grad student to help learn how to debug the digital control system.
