In 2016 PSI developed a pixel readout chip dedicated to sensor studies. It provides a full alanalogue signal without zero suppression, but needs a fast (~100ns) external trigger and has some speed limitations. The array is 160 x 155 pixels with a pitch of 50 Micrometer in both directions. A simple readout system based on the CMS pixel digital test board has been designed which was used in test beams at DESY. Another, non CMS specific and more powerful readout systems are in developement. The talk explaines the chip and its operation.

Please schedule Tue after 10:00 or Wed if possible.
