 ====== S800 data format from Event Filter (S800 Filter) ====== ====== S800 data format from Event Filter (S800 Filter) ======
-This page describes the data format assembled ​by the S800 filter. The data is written in a series of 16-bit unsigned integers, subsequently referred to as ''​words''​. ​This format is suitable for the output ​of most of the modules ​presently used in the S800and in the case where 32 bit integers are needed, the proper unpacking procedures will be given.+The purpose of the S800 filter is to parse data from the S800 Event Builder, and reformat them in separated data packets, with an [[#General packet structure|specific structure]]. 
 + 
 + 
 +Data from the S800 filter are encapsulated as Ring Items (RI) and, as such, will include a [[http://​docs.nscl.msu.edu/​daq/​newsite/​nscldaq-11.2/​c185.html|Ring-Item Header]], a [[http://​docs.nscl.msu.edu/​daq/​newsite/​nscldaq-11.2/​x214.html|Body Header]], and a Body, where the real parsed data are included. Ring Items emitted from the S800 filter are pushed into a [[http://​docs.nscl.msu.edu/​daq/​newsite/​nscldaq-11.2/​c43.html|Ring-Buffer]] called **s800filter**. 
 + 
 + 
 +This page describes the data format assembled ​in the __Body__ of the S800 Filter RI. The data is written in a series of 16-bit unsigned integers, subsequently referred to as ''​words''​. ​Regardless ​of what modules ​are being read, the Body of the S800 Filter RI will always include four 16-bit wordsfollowed by a series of [[#General packet structure|data packets]]. The structure of the whole Body is described in the diagram below: 
 + 
 + 
 + 
 +^ Body Length 1 ^ Body Length 2 ^ S800 Data Tag ^ S800 Data Version ^ Data Packet 1 ^ Data Packet 2 ^ ... | 
 + 
 +  * **Body Length 1**: Number of words in body (self inclusive) 
 +  * **Body Length 2**: Number of words in body - 1 (self-inclusive) 
 +  * **S800 Data Tag**: 0x5800 
 +  * **S800 Data Version**: 0x0005

 +===== Galotte packet =====
 +The Galotte packet includes up to five time signals from the Galotte detector. These times are encoded in the [[S800 USB DAQ data format#Tag 0x7186: Phillips 7186 TDC module for time-of-flights|Phillips TDC]]. Note that for most of the experiments,​ this packet is empty (i.e. it only includes the packet-length and packet tag) because this detector is rarely used.

 +Where **Ch** runs from 0 to 3. These words are sent by the Filter as long as **time** is greater than 0. 
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +===== LaBr packet =====
 +The LaBr packet includes the energy (encoded in the [[S800 USB DAQ data format#Tag 0x4300: FERA module for plastic scintillator energies|FERA LeCroy module]]) and times (encoded in a Phillips TDC) from up to four LaBr detectors.
 +Note that although there is a specific EVB tag for that Phillips TDC (0x7187), this module is currently not included in the S800 electronics. As a result, the data packet is empty (i.e. it only includes the packet-length and packet tag).
