The New Small Wheel (NSW) is an upgrade for enhanced triggering and reconstruction of muons in the ATLAS forward region. The large LV power demands of the NSW necessitate a point-of-load architecture with on-detector power conversion. The radiation load and magnetic field of this environment, while significant, are nevertheless still in the range where commercial-off-the-shelf power devices...

The CMS Phase-1 Pixel detector, to be installed in the year-end technical stop 2016/17, will feature a power system based on DC-DC conversion. The power system, including the final DC-DC converters based on the FEAST2 ASIC by CERN, DC-DC main boards, power distribution PCBs, power supplies and thermal management, will be described, and the performance of the components will be discussed. The...

The increased luminosity of the HL-LHC will require more channels in the upgraded ATLAS Tracker, as a result of the finer detector segmentation.Thus, a more efficient power distribution and HV biasing of the sensors are among the many technological challenges facing the ATLAS Tracker Upgrade. A number of approaches, including the sharing of the same HV line among several sensors and suitable...
