Yes, firstly I configured the chip with 4x2048 bins by setting the Write Shift Register to 01010101b， A3-A0 keeps 1101----> secondly I enabled the domino wave, wait some time for stable, A3-A0 keeps 1111 ---->thirdly stops the domino wave when the trigger comes, A3-A0 keeps 1101 (or 1010, 0000)----> forthly send the clock pulse to the srclk pin, A3-A0 keeps 1101, srout pin keeps low----> fifthly enable rsrload, A3-A0 (0000-1000), srout pin reacts nomally. I think the cascading is worked when I checked the waveform on the oscilloscope. Is there any step I missed?
Note that you have to read out the Write Shift Register only if you do channel cascading, e.g. configuring the chip with 4x2048 bins by setting the Write Shift Register to 01010101b. Then the Write Shift Register tells you in which 1024-bin segment the Domino Wave has been stopped. If you use the normal 8x1024 bin mode, you don't have to read out the Write Shift Register since it continas only 1's.
I tried the logic in my designed board. The results are shown in the picture: Srout keeps low when A3-A0 is set to 1101 and srclk is set as you mentioned. And the drs4 chip does not output sine wave in such configuration.
Srout signal only reacts after the rsrload signal is pulled high and A3-A0 is not 1101.
The number of srclk is not enough? Is there any recommended time to configure the command?
You first set A3-A0, on the next clock cycle you issue pulses on srclk, and about 10ns after each clock pulse the output shows up at srout. Best is to verity this with an oscilloscope.
The radout of the shift register is independent of the readout mode, so you can use with with MUXOUT as well.
In DSR4 DATASHEET Rev.0.9 Page13, there is a paragraph "If the DRS4 is configured for channel cascading or daisy chaining, it is necessary to know which the current channel is where the sampling has been stopped. This can be
determined by addressing the Write Shift Register withA3-A0 = 1101b and by applying clock pulses to the SRCLK input ...".
My question is the timing details about srclk, srout, A3-A0 in the above control and its timing relation with stop shift register (Figure 15). And can this configuration be used in the full readout mode with output MUXOUT?
