A new silicon microstrip detector was designed by the CDF collaboration for the proposed high-luminosity operation of the Tevatron pp̄ collider (Run IIb). The detector is radiation-tolerant and will still be functional after exposure to particle fluences of 10 1-MeV equivalent neutrons=cm and radiation doses of 20MRad. The detector will maintain or exceed(More)

A switched capacitor array (SCA) will provide analogue storage for the cathode readout of the cathode strip chambers in the endcap muon system of CMS. After a series of smaller prototypes, the first iteration of the fullsized 16-channel 96-cell per channel SCA ASIC is undergoing precision testing using a specially designed test board. The chip has(More)
In contrast to traditional robotic manipulators composed of rigid links, a continuum manipulator is a long, continuously flexible extremity that grasps objects usingthe entire length of the trunk. OctArm, a three-section continuum manipulator composed of 9 McKibben actuators, was mounted on tracked mobile platform and teleoperated in a series of field and(More)
The switched capacitor array (SCA) is the baseline choice for storage of data during the level-1 trigger latency period for the forward cathode strip chambers in the CMS experiment. The SCA application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) is under development at U.C. Davis and is now in the prototyping stage1. The present SCA design employs full analog wave(More)
