Today I finally implemented a feature in the whitening triggering that I should have a long time ago: an override button.
Now, on each RFPD's phase rotation screen, there is a button to either allow triggering for that PD (both quads) or to be in manual mode.
If you are allowing triggering, they will behave as they have for the last ~year.....if any degree of freedom is using either quadrant of that PD, and that degree of freedom is triggered, then engage analog whitening and digital de-whitening.
If you chose manual mode, then you can engage or disengage the whitening as you please. (The analog whitening and digital de-whitening are still tied together).
