The USBPix is the single module system designed by Bonn as an alternative test system for FE-I3. More than 20 laboratories invested on this system and an effort is going on to upgrade hardware and software to the new FE-I4. This will be the IBL single module test bench system.

Since FE-I4 submission is approaching we started to think about the number of test systems needed for the IBL collaboration members. At the moment no USBPix systems are left in Bonn and it is going to start a new production batch. Therefore is needed an estimation about how many systems for FE-I4 are requested in the next 12 months.

The upgrade of a FE-I3 USBPix system to FE-I4 requires a new adapter board which connects the so-called Multi-IO board to the FE-I4 board. This upgrade will be free of charges for owners of a FE-I3 USBPix system.

A complete new USBPix system for FE-I4 consists of a Mulit-IO board plus the FE-I4 adapter board. The cost is not defined yet, but will be in the same range as for the FE-I3 USBPix system (~1,000 Euros).
