This workshop will be dedicated to electronic issues for upgrades, focusing on subjects where common features or developments are likely. Developments for upgrades for proton-proton and heavy ion running for Phase I and for high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) will be included.
The following main areas will be covered:
* Front-end electronics development for Phase I and HL-LHC,
* Electronics systems for triggering and DAQ at Phase I and HL-LHC, including level-1 tracking trigger and the use of modular electronics standards such as xTCA,
* Optical and electrical links,
* Power distribution and low power design techniques,
* Progress on upgrades for HL-LHC.
The oral presentations will be made by invitation. A poster session will be organised for which abstracts will have to be submitted on the indico page. More details can be obtained in contacting a member of the programme committee:
