Monitor the VFAT3 temperature
[Migrated from this GitHub issue.]
The VFAT3 embeds two temperature sensors, one internal sensor and one external sensor (PT100, is it installed?) It is possible to readout these sensors with the same ADC as the ones used for the DAC scans. The ADC units to degrees can be done via the parameters store into the VFAT production database. A 1 point calibration has been performed for each ASIC.
The issue can be split into smaller steps:
Write the appropriate RPC methods
Export the raw values in the monitoring interface
Convert the raw data into degrees (requires some kind of DB)
Please note that this functionality can interfere with the DAC scans. Different possibilities can be envisioned: disable the monitoring during the DAC scans, use a different ADC for temperature monitoring than for the scan routines,...
What is the expected correct behavior?
One should be able to monitor the VFAT3 temperature.
