Regional Calorimeter L1 Trigger

Complete: 2


The Regional Calorimeter L1Trigger Emulation software is being developed by the UWisconsin group (J. Leonard, M. Bachtis, and S. Dasu). This is an updated version of code written by W. C. Hogg, and modified by J. Leonard. It is released as part of CMSSW. For running the RCT emulator follow the SWGuideL1CaloTrigger put together by the GCT group.

RCT-specific Packages:

Other packages including code used by RCT: Other relevant packages:
  • ECAL-provided input scale
    • CalibCalorimetry/EcalTPGTools
    • SimCalorimetry/EcalTrigPrimProducers
  • HCAL-provided input scale
    • CalibCalorimetry/CaloTPG
    • CalibFormats/CaloTPG
  • Input data formats
    • DataFormats/EcalDigi
    • DataFormats/HcalDigi

Nov. 13, 2008 V00-02-17 Adding sample-of-interest (SOI) shifts to get HCAL time-sample with data for GR DQM (needed time sample is NOT "sample-of-interest"!)

Nov. 6, 2008 V00-02-15-DQM Exact same as V00-02-15 except includes kludged to access HCAL GR data in actual current time samples (not samples of interest, unfortunately). Necessary for correctness of DQM results.

July 11, 2008 V00-02-13 Uses L1Calo{E/H}calScale now instead of EcalTPGScale/CaloTPGTranscoder; still able to use old-style scales with .cfi replace. Also backs out CalibCalorimetry/EcalTPGTools -> CondFormats/EcalObjects changes (migration didn't happen).

Apr. 9, 2008 V00-02-05 Integrated with EcalTPGScale to decompress ecal et rather than just dividing by a hard-coded factor. (Does not include minor changes to .cfg files to make them run, namely Configuration/CMS.ReleaseValidation -> Configuration/StandardSequences, but changes are in head.)
Apr. 1, 2008 V00-02-04 Changed behavior of producer when number of bx's in data is less than requested: now logs warning and fills extra bx's with zeros instead of throwing exception. Also fixed ECAL time sample access.
Mar. 28, 2008 V00-02-03 This tag adds the python config files.
Mar. 11, 2008 V00-02-02 Added ability to process up to 5 bunch crossings for each event (primary crossing + two before + two after)

May 29, 2007 V00-00-20-07 Tag compatible with 131: getByType -> getByLabel in producer.

Mar. 28, 2007 V00-00-19 Fixed handling of HF part of simple lookuptable used for pattern tests. Also added a bypass of the et->rank conversion for EM candidates in the pattern test case (it just uses et). Analyzer now prints out crate/card/region and isolation bit for EM candidates. Still to do: fix five-tower-corner bug in electron algorithm.
Mar. 26, 2007 V00-00-18 Improved implementation of ECAL fine grain bit mask for pattern tests. Also added parameters to L1RCTTestAnalyzer to be able to print out either or both of EmCands and RegionSums. This tag includes the pattern test transparent/zeroed lookuptable text files.

Jan. 24, 2007 V00-00-08 Kludge: changed fine grain veto to agree with TPG.
Jan. 22, 2007 V00-00-07 Corrected TPG->RCT phi transform, tau veto now uses ET instead of raw E cuts.
Jan. 4, 2007 V00-00-06 Integrated with new HCAL TPG's
Nov. 8, 2006 V00-00-05 Initial LUT implementation included, reads from a file (uses FileInPath). No longer creates towerinput.txt. Also includes energy -> rank conversion for EM objects being passed to GCT. Not yet completed: Hardware test methods.
Nov. 8, 2006 V00-00-04 Ignore. Use V00-00-05 instead.
Oct. 27, 2006 V00-00-03 Includes capability to read input from TPGs. Removed debugging output.
