The CMS collaboration is preparing a major upgrade of its detector, so it can operate during the high luminosity run of the LHC (HL-LHC) from 2025. The upgraded tracker electronics will reconstruct the trajectories of charged particles within a latency of a few microseconds, so that they can be used by the level-1 trigger. An emulation framework, CIDAF, has been developed to provide a reference to a proposed FPGA-based implementation of this track finder, which employs a Time-Multiplexed (TM) technique for data processing.
