This workshop will be dedicated to electronic issues for upgrades, focusing on subjects where common features or developments are likely. Developments for upgrades for proton-proton and heavy ion running for Phase I and for high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) will be included.

The following main areas will be covered:

  • Front-end electronics developments for Phase I and HL-LHC
  • Electronics systems for triggering at Phase I and HL-LHC, including level-1 tracking trigger and the use of modular electronics standards such as xTCA
  • Electronics systems for DAQ and DCS at HL-LHC
  • High precision timing measurement and clock distribution systems
  • Optical and electrical links
  • Power distribution and low power design techniques
  • IC technologies and radiation hardness issues
  • Progress on upgrades for HL-LHC

The oral presentations will be made by invitation. A poster session will be organised for which abstracts will have to be submitted on the indico page. More details can be obtained in contacting a member of the Programme Committee:
