The Intermediate Water Cherenkov Detector (IWCD) will be a new near detector for the approved Hyper-Kamiodande experiment. It will use approx. 500 multi-PMT modules (mPMTs) as its photosensors. Each mPMT will house nineteen 3" PMTs enclosed in a water-tight pressure vessel, along with the associated electronics. In this talk, we will briefly describe the overall architecture of the electronics system, followed by a description of analog front-end electronics, digitization system utilizing flash-ADC converters, digital signal processing algorithms planned for data compression and extraction of pulse features (i.e. estimation of time of arrival and charge), and finally high voltage and slow-control systems.

TIPP2020 abstract resubmission? No, this is an entirely new submission.
