The ToPiX ASIC is a custom development for the hybrid pixel sensors of the PANDA experiment Micro Vertex Detector. The ASIC will provide both the time and amplitude informations (via the Time over Threshold technique) of the incoming particle. ToPiX will consist of a matrix of 116x110 cells with a pixel size of 100x100 um2, the column readout logic and two 311 Mbit/s serializers. A reduced...

The first samples of the FE-I4 engineering run (called FE-I4A) delivered promising results in terms of the merits imposed by the LHC pixel detectors. The FE-I4 team envisaged a number of modifications and fine-tuning before the actual exploitation, planned within Insertable B-Layer (IBL). As the IBL schedule was pushed significantly forward, a quick and efficient plan needed to be devised for...
