Subject: putting together a 110 MHz LSC demod board for AS 

I have modified one of the spare demod boards that was sitting above the electronics bench (the one which was unlabeled - the others say 33MHz, 55MHz and 165MHz) to be the new AS110 demod board.  In place of the T1 coil, and the C3 and C6 resistors, I have put the commercial splitter PSCQ-2-120+.  In place of U5 (the low pass for the PD input) I have put an SCLF-135+. 

In order to figure out how to make the pinout of the PSCQ match up with the available pads from T1, I first pulled the "AS11" board (it's not something that we use, so it would be less of a tragedy if something happened while I had the board pulled).  However, while the PCB layout is the same, the splitter for the low frequencies (PSCQ-2-51W) has a different pinout than the one I need for the 110MHz.  So, I put AS11 back, and pulled the POP110 board. (After I noted the pinout on POP110, I reinstalled that board.  To get it out, I had to unplug the I and Q outs of POP22, but I have also replugged those in).

For my new AS110 demod board, I copied the pin connections on POP110.  I have made a little diagram, so you can see what pins went where.  The top 2 rectangles are the "before" installation cartoon, and the bottom is the "as installed" cartoon.

The one thing that must be noted is that, because of the pinout of the splitter and the constraints of the board layout, the +0 degrees (I-phase) output of the splitter is connected to the Q channel for the rest of the demod board.  This means that the +90 degrees (Q-phase) output of the splitter is connected to the I channel for the rest of the demod board.  This is not noted for POP110, but is true for both:  The I and Q channels of the 110 MHz demod boards are switched.  In practice, we can handle this with our digital phase rotation.

Daytime tomorrow, I will test my new board as Suresh did in elog 4736.  Before we get to use AS110, we need (a) some LO juice from the RF distribution box, and (b) a spot to plug the board in, in the LSC rack.  Meditating on how those are going to happen are also tasks for daytime tomorrow.
