The Image Processor of the Michelson Doppler Imager instrument is capable of producing a large variety of different types of data. In order to keep track of the MDI data on the ground, the concept of a Data Product Code (DPC) a has been developed. The DPC is a 4 byte parameter that identifies the type of data produced by the MDI instrument. Detailed below are rules for constructing these Data Product Codes. The DPC is split into the following fields: bits 28-31 indicate primary identification bits 16-27 indicate details of the type of acquisition bits 00-15 indicate data format and parameters or identifier The Data Product Code described as bit fields: byte 1 byte 2 byte 3 byte 4 XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX = Primary Data Type XXXX XXXXXXXX = Type Description XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX = Data Format or Descriptor The Data Product Code described as hex characters: 7654 3210 xxxx xxxx x = Primary Data Type x = Type Identifier xx = Type Parameters x = Format Identifier xxx = Format Parameters An example of how the DPC is decoded for a typical 5k and 160k data product: hex char 76543210 |---x7----| |-----x6-----| |--x54--| |-x3-| |-x210-| dpc 03004000 Flight 5k bp dopplergram fd/ob 60s vwbin Medium-l dpc 42000000 Flight 160k dopplergram fd/ob 60s crop #1 PRIMARY DATA TYPE Bits 28-31 indicate the primary data type with the following assignments: XXXX bits 28-31 X = Flight or Ground (bit 31) 0 indicates flight data product 1 indicates ground data product X = 5 kbps or 160 kbps (bit 30) 0 indicates 5 kbps science telemetry data product 1 indicates 160 kbps science telemetry data product XX = Type of data product (bits 28 & 29) 00 indicates standard science data products 01 indicates limb figure science data products 10 indicates Image Processor data products 11 indicates miscellaneous data products * IP Register, List, Table, Memory Dump, ISS Products * The data types can be split into the following classes or groups: Flight 5k standard science DPC's - 0xxxxxxx Flight 5k limb figure science DPC's - 1xxxxxxx Flight 5k IP dump & status DPC's - 2xxxxxxx Flight 160k standard science DPC's - 4xxxxxxx Flight 160k reg, list & tables DPC's - 6xxxxxxx Ground test 5k standard science DPC's - 8xxxxxxx Ground test 5k limb figure science DPC's - 9xxxxxxx Ground test 5k IP dump & status DPC's - Axxxxxxx Ground test 5k development DPC's - Bxxxxxxx Ground test 160k standard science DPC's - Cxxxxxxx Ground test 160k reg, list & table DPC's - Exxxxxxx Ground test 160k development DPC's - Fxxxxxxx TYPE DESCRIPTION - SCIENCE OBSERVABLES & LIMB FIGURE For standard science and limb figure data products, bits 16-27 identify the science observable calculated by the Image Processor. The science observables include image resolution (full disk - 1x and high resolution - 3.2x), and observation or calibration mode, and observing interval. Bits 24-27 indicate the observable type with the following assignments: 0 - filtergram 1 - summed filtergrams 2 - full disk dopplergram 3 - full disk dopplergram with bad pixel zeroing 4 - high resolution line depth 5 - full disk line depth with flat fielding 6 - full disk continuum intensity 7 - full disk continuum intensity with flat fielding 8 - full disk magnetogram 9 - full disk summed magnetograms A - high resolution dopplergram B - high resolution magnetogram C - full disk line depth D - high resolution continuum E to F - future use Bits 22 and 23 indicate details of how the observable was generated: XX = Observing Interval (bits 22 & 23) 00 indicates filtergrams observed over 60 seconds 01 indicates filtergrams observed over 30 seconds 10 indicates observations that are time weighted averaged 11 indicates other observing intervals Bits 16-21 indicate a version number of the observable, or details of how the observable was generated: Current Filtergram Version Assignments for Bits 16-19 (with Bits 25-27 = 0) 1 - Simple filtergram buffered in memory fltgram.ips 2 - Take a picture (TAP) burst, filtergram tap_burst.ips 3 - Take a picture (TAP) continuous, filtergram tap_cont.ips 4 - Ice hunt dark frame one_fltgram.ips 5 - Ice hunt FD-CAL filtergram one_fltgram.ips 6 - Ice hunt HR-CAL filtergram one_fltgram.ips 7 - compression test filtergram comp_test.ips 8 - HR continuum filtergram hrcont_flt.ips 9 - Intermediate Sd Filtergram mk_cont.ips A - Intermediate Si Filtergram mk_cont.ips B - FD continuum filtergram prog_mvc60.ips C - high cadence high resolution filgergram prog_high_cad1.ips D - FD CAL mode detune filtergram prog_detune.ips E - FD OBS mode detune filtergram prog_detune.ips F - FD or HR focus filtergrams prog_focus30.ips TYPE DESCRIPTION - IP REGISTERS, LISTS, TABLES, MEMORY DUMPS & ISS MODE For lists and tables bits, 16-27 indicate the type of list or table and bits 00-15 are an identifying index. Typical list/table types are velocity, reciprocal, and square root look up tables, and binning, crop list and flat field tables. The available index space is sufficient that a unique index identifier could be associated with each list or table and that they could be associated with the corresponding data format. Bits 24-27 indicate the observable type with the following assignments: 0 - IP Register Dump 1 - IP Table Dump 2 - IP Bin List Dump 3 - IP Limb Figure List Dump 4 - IP Memory Dump 5 to 9 - future use A - ISS High Rate Sampled Data B to D - future use E - IP Error Dump F - future use For Table Dumps (Bits 24-27 = 1), Bits 12-15 are assigned as follows: 1 - Reciprocal Table 2 - Velocity Table 3 - Square-Root Table For Bin List Dumps (Bits 24-27 = 2), Bits 00-15 correspond to the Data Format Bits for the Science Observables using the applicable Bin Lists. For Memory Dumps (Bits 24-27 = 4), Bits 00-03 provide the page number of memory being dumped. TYPE DESCRIPTION - MISCELLANEOUS For the miscellaneous data products, bits 16-27 indicates the type of acquisition and bits 00-15 provide a data identifier. The miscellaneous data products include ground calibration data, and simulated test data. The ground calibration data that has been collected over the past two years has an acquisition type of xFFF with data identifiers from x0000 to xFFFF. Bits 24-27 indicate the observable type with the following assignments: 0 to 9 - Simulated Data A to E - future use F - Ground Calibration and Test Data DATA FORMAT - SCIENCE OBSERVABLES For standard science data products, bits 00-15 indicate the data format and any parameters necessary to fully describe the image. Bits 12-15 specify the binning type with the following assignments: 0 - cropped image (crop) 1 - cropped image with sqrt cmpr and scaling by 100.0 (crop+sqrt#1) 2 - nxm extract (extract) 3 - nxm extract with sqrt cmpr (extract+sqrt) 4 - nxm binning (rowbin and/or lrbin) 5 - rectangular weighted binning (rwbin) 6 - vector weighted binning (vwbin) 7 - irregular weighted binning (iwbin) 8 - arbitrary weighted binning (awbin) 9 - circular buffer A - cropped image with sqrt cmpr and scaling by 64.0 (crop+sqrt#2) B - full 1040x1033 image (not-extracted) C - multiple extract with sqrt cmpr and scaling by 100.0 D - F - future use Bits 00-14 indicate the specific instance of each of the binning types, with the following identifiers for each type of binning. crop radius identifier - crop & crop+sqrt The crop radius is 1/8 pixel values extract parameter identifier - extract & extract+sqrt Two 6 bit fields - first indicates total # of pixels; second indicates the shape examples: xxxx2000 - Extract 2^20 pixels 1024x1024 xxxx2201 - Extract 2^17 pixels (0010) 1024x128 xxxx2202 - Extract 2^17 pixels (0010) 128x1024 xxxx2400 - Extract 2^16 pixels (0100) 256x256 xxxx2c00 - Extract 2^14 pixels (1100) 128x128 xxxx2e00 - Extract 819,200 pixels(1110) 1024x800 xxxx2100 - Extract 90,000 pixels(0001) 300x300 xxxx2300 - Extract 122,500 pixles(0011) 350x350 xxxx2500 - Extract 160,000 pixels(0101) 400x400 xxxx2700 - Extract 202,500 pixels(0111) 450x450 xxxx2900 - Extract 302,500 pixels(1001) 550x550 xxxx3000 - Extract 2^20 pixels and square-root compress 1024x1024 xxxx3xxx - Extract N pixels and square-root compress binning list identifier - nxm binning Two 6 bit fields - first indicates total # of pixels; second indicates the shape and version # examples: xxxx4400 - Bin 4x4 256x256 xxxx4800 - Bin 2x2 512x512 xxxx4c00 - Bin 8x8 128x128 rwbin list identifier - rectangular weighted binning vwbin list identifier - vector weighted binning irregular list identifier - irregular weighted binning arbitrary bin list identifier - arbitrary weighted binning DATA FORMAT - LIMB FIGURE For limb figure data products, bits 00-15 provide the limb figure radius and thickness, with bits 12-15 indicating the crop radius thickness (or delta radius) in 1/2 pixel values and bits 00-11 indicating the inner crop radius in 1/8 pixels increments. The formula for the outer radius is: outer_radius = inner_radius + (delta_radius)*4 Where both the inner and outer radii are in 1/8 pixel integer values and the delta_radius is given in 1/2 pixels values. Using this formula for a limb figure with an inner radius of 480 pixels and an outer radius of 486 pixels results in a limb figure data format parameters of CF00 (hex). Bits 12-15 represent a 6 pixel limb figure thickness (2*6 or C hex), and bits 00-11 represent a radius of 8*480 (3840 decimal or F00 hex). In the special case where the delta_radius = 0, the bits 00-11 are an index for a look-up table of limb figure parameters. The block telecommand to generate and load a new limb figure list is: mbiptbl 0xn04 ipaddrlow ipaddrhi ver# Router Rinner LRDparameters The LRDparameters include the number of pixels expected in the data product, compression parameters, and the data product code. DATA FORMAT - IP REGISTERS, TABLES & LISTS The IP register dump in the 5k telemetry is 94 words long, and consists of a standard 52 word register dump followed by 42 words of a variable set of registers. The fixed register dump consists of 20 words containing the CCD temperature information stripped off the CCD header, and 32 words containing the status of the purge list processing. The variable portion of the register dump contains the starting register number followed by a spare word and then the values of 40 registers. The low word of the 5k IP register dump Data Product Code contains the beginning register number of the variable portion of the register dump. aaaa = starting number of variable portion of 5k IP register dump iiii = IP identifier for 160k register dump tttt = IP identifier for 160k table dump bbbb = bin list identifier - same as id for observable llll = limb figure list identifier - same as id for observable mmmm = IP memory dump identifier DATA FORMAT - MISCELLANEOUS To be described.
