Description

GRBNeT is a Gamma Ray Burst Neutrino Telescope made of autonomously operated arrays of deep-sea light detectors, anchored to the sea-bed without any cabled connection to the shore. This paper presents the digital and analog electronics that we have designed and developed for the GRBNeT prototype. We describe the requirements for these electronics and present their design and functionality. We will present low-power analog electronics for the PMTs utilized in the GRBNeT prototype and the FPGA based digital system for data gathering and storage. We conclude with preliminary performance measurements of the electronics systems for the GRBNeT prototype.
