Hello to everybody,
coming back from the TDAQ week I started to look at the notes. I find 
difficult to follow the discussion, however I would like to underly some 
important points that I am not sure are reported correctly (I understand 
that you need some written description of the LAMB and AMBoard and now I 
plan to provide it quickly):

(1)  from each LAMB 4 road independent serial outputs are provided. Now 
they go to a single DO and TF (a pipeline is provided for each LAMB on 
the AUX board), but in principle, if convenient, they could go to 4 
independent DOs, and TFs.

(2) Each LAMB contains 8 pipelines of 4 AMchips, so each of the four 
LAMB outputs will collect roads from 2 pipelines in parallel, that is 8 

(3) all the numbers you are using are done with the use of just one 
Don't care bit, but Guido did study also the case of 2 Don;t care bits 
and we could even go up to 3.

(4) as I said other times, before simulating a lot more we should check 
that real data with 20 pile-up events gives almost the same results than
