DATA driven FEE for time and energy measurement with highly segmented detector - course slides

[ Home ] [ Back ]

The course gives an introduction to integrated front end electronics for the free running readout of highly segmented detectors (pixel detector, microstrip, silicon photomultiplier).

All the presentations relative to the next International Workshop on Real time, self triggered front end electronics for multichannel detectors can be found here .


  • Architecture for integrated front-end
  • Low noise front-end amplifiers
  • High performance discriminators
  • Ultra-low power ADC
  • Low-power multi-channel TDC
  • FPGA implementation
