Introduction

This page lists the public figures and schematics illustrating the detector electronics.

Electronics

The analog pulses from the PMTs undergo shaping and amplification in the 3-in-1 cards in two gains (low and high) with a ratio of 1:64. Low gain signals which are summed in groups by adder boards are provided to the Level 1 Calorimeter Trigger. The analog pulses are received by digitizer boards where the signal is converted into digital samples every 25 ns, which are stored in the front-end pipeline memories, the so called Data Management Units (DMU). Upon Level 1 accept, an event-frame-­selector selects high gain samples unless the highest sample is saturated in which case the low gain samples are used and stores them in a buffer. Event frames are pulled from the DMUs by the Interface card which formats the data and transfers the frames to the off-detector Read-Out Drivers (RODs).

The front-end electronics is divided in eight identical Digitizer Boards reading 6 PMTs each. The analog pulses are received by the Digitizer Board where the signal is converted into digital samples every 25 ns, which are stored in the front-end pipeline memories in the the so called Data Management Units (DMU). Upon Level 1 accept, an event-frame-selector selects the samples and stores them in a buffer. Event frames are pulled from the DMUs by the Interface card which formats the data and transfers the frames to the off-detector Read-Out Drivers (RODs) through optical fiber. The Digitizers are chained to transmit the data from the outermost boards t the Interface Card placed in the center of the SuperDrawer. Low gain analog signals which are summed in groups by adder boards are provided to the Level 1 Calorimeter Trigger. The Trigger, Timing and Control (TTC) signals are received are received by the front-end through optical links in the Interface Board which broadcasts the signals to the Digitizer Boards.
