Setting address

SIS3610 Address.jpg

Pin Setting
SW-A32U 3
SW-A32L 8
SW-A24U 3
SW-A24L 8
SW-A16 3

There was also a of jumpers labeled "EN_A16, "EN_A24" and "EN_A32". The factory default setting was "EN_A32" so I moved the jumper to "EN_16".

I left the base address unchanged. Which means for A16 addressing mode the address will be 0x3800.

loading ROC library

A ROC library is created by compiling "c" code functions which make VxWorks system calls to modules in the VME.

compiling VxWorks Modules

In order to compile VxWorks modules you need the cross compiler ccppc which compiles binaries which will run on PPC chip sets used by the ROC. The cross compiled was distributed as a binary from the CODA group and is located in

 You also need the header files for the particular version of VxWorks you are using.  I created a subdirectory called "ROClibs" in which I store all of these libraries and download them onto the ROC.  The "ROCLibs" subdirectory is located under the CODA directory but isn't associated with a version of CODA since.  I got the VxWorks header files from

and copied the whole "h/" subdirectory under "ROClibs"


The Makefile below is used to compile the libraries

# Description:

The SIS3610 library source code is given below:


The header file is:


just type

make -f Makefile.ppc

to compile the library

Test Communication from ROC console

If the ROC didn't download the sis library from within the boot script then you will need to do it by hand from the ROC console.

->cd "/home/daq/CODA/ROClibs"
->ld < sis3610Lib.o  

From the ROC console (minicom window) I tried talking to the SIS3610 using the library function "s3610Init"

->  s3610Init 0x3800                                                            
Initialized SIS3610 ID 0 at address 0x91003800                                  
value = 0 = 0x0

The next test was to try and turn the user LED (labeled "U" on the front pannel) on and off.

From the ROC console I typed

-> s3610SetLED                                                                  
value = 0 = 0x0                                                                 

and I saw the green LED light up

I then typed

-> s3610ClearLED                                                                
value = 0 = 0x0                                                                 

and I saw it turn off
