The Level-1 Calorimeter Trigger is a digital pipelined system, reducing the 40 MHz bunch-crossing rate down to 75 kHz. It consists of a Preprocessor , a Cluster Processor (CP), and a Jet/Energy-sum Processor (JEP). The CP and JEP receive digitised trigger-tower data from the Preprocessor and produce electron/photon, tau, and jet trigger multiplicities, total and missing transverse...

The innermost part of the ATLAS experiment will be a pixel detector, built around 1750 individual detector modules. To operate the modules, readout electronics and other detector components, a complex power supply and control system is necessary. The unique power, grounding and control requirements are described, along with the custom made components of our power and control...

The hadronic Tile Calorimeter of ATLAS generates ~10000 digitized pulses of 10-bit samples spaced in time 25 ns. In order to read-out and process these data the Read Out Driver boards (RODs) are equipped with real time fixed-point Digital Signal Processors. The processed information is sent to the second level trigger. This paper explains the performance of an algorithm to...

The work described here has been developed in the context of the NEMO Collaboration with the aim of studying and designing a front-end electronics for the Optical Modules, which contain the telescope optical sensors, as a full-custom Very Large Scale Integration ASIC. The solution has a multitude of advantages. The most important are low power consumption and the preanalysis and...

Time of flight detectors are used for both particle identification and triggering. RPC detectors are becoming widely used because their excellent TOF capabilities and reduced cost. The new ESTRELA Resistive Plate Chamber (RPC) detector, which is currently being installed in the HADES detector at Darmstadt GSI, will contain 1000 RPC modules, covering a total active area of 8 m2....

A portable readout system for silicon microstrip sensors is currently being developed. This system uses a front-end readout chip, which was developed for the LHC experiments. The system will be used to investigate the main properties of this type of sensors and their future applications. The system is divided in two parts: a daughter board and a mother board. The first one...
