The ATLAS Forward Detectors for Measurement of Elastic Scattering and Luminosity (ALFA) have been fully installed during the 2010-2011 winter LHC shutdown. ALFA consists of 8 mini tracking detectors made of 20 planes of scintillating fibers placed in Roman Pot units near the beam and 240m away on both sides of the interaction point. The front-end electronics sit directly on top of the PMTs and...
48. Electronics for the camera of the First G-APD Cherenkov Telescope (FACT) for ground based gamma-ray astronomy

Within the FACT project, we construct a new type of camera based on Geiger-mode avalanche photodiodes (G-APDs). Compared to photomultipliers, G-APDs are more robust, need lower operation voltage and have the potential of higher efficiency and lower cost, but were never tested in the harsh environments of Cherenkov telescopes. The FACT camera consists of 1440 G-APD pixels and readout channels,...

The architecture and characterisation of the NA62 GigaTracker End of Column Demonstrator Hybrid Pixel Detector (HPD) will be presented. This detector must perform time stamping to 200 ps (RMS) or better, provide 300 µm pitch position information and operate with a dead time of 1 % or less for 800 MHz−1 GHz beam rate. The demonstrator HPD Assembly comprises a readout chip with a test column...
110. Development of an ATCA IPMI Controller Mezzanine Board and its usage on an ATCA ROD Evaluator board for the ATLAS LAr upgrade

9/27/11, 12:15 PM
In the context of the LHC upgrades, a new Read-Out Driver (ROD) board for the ATLAS LAr calorimeter is being developed. xTCA (Advanced/Micro Telecom Computing Architecture) is becoming a standard in high energy physics and is a serious candidate for future readout systems. We will present our current developments to master ATCA and to integrate a large number of very high speed links (96...
