Paper Abstract

This paper describes the RPC Link Box Control System (RLBCS) developed for the RPC muon trigger in the CMS experiment on LHC collider under construction in CERN (Geneva). RLBCS subsystem is reponsible for relatively slow, bidirectional communication between the link electronics placed on detector and devices of CMS Detector Control System (DCS) located in the control room. The RLBCS is used for diagnostic and control purposes, and therefore it is essential for the RPC muon trigger. The RLBCS is also responsible for configuration of the FPGAs in the RPC link electronics, working in the harsh, irradiated environment. Additionally most part of the RLBCS itself works in the irradiated area, so assuring its reliable operation required some special solutions. All the above factors make this subsystem an important and non-trivial task in the CMS RPC muon trigger development.
