The Front End Module (FEM) is a custom on-detector FPGA based digital data acquisition card for the Large Pixel Detector (LPD) currently under construction for the European X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) facility in Hamburg. In normal XFEL operation the LPD detector will generate 10 GBytes/sec of sparsified data for every one mega-pixel of sensor area. Data processed by the FEM is...

In order to achieve the required levels of luminosity in the CLIC linear collider, mechanical stabilization of quadrupoles to the nanometre level is required. The paper describes a design of hybrid electronics combining an analog controller and digital communication with the main machine controller. The choice of local analog control ensures the required low latency while still keeping...
