The Global Tracking Unit of the ALICE Transition Radiation Detector is a high-speed, low-latency trigger processor installed at the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Based on the analysis of up to 20,000 parametrized particle track segments per event, a trigger decision is formed within approx. 2 μs. Furthermore, the system is designed(More)
An example of an FPGA based application for a high-energy physics experiment is presented which features all facets of modern FPGA design. The special requirements here are high bandwidth (2.16 Tbit/s), low latency, and flexibility in the processing algorithm. The input data come optically via 1 080 links operating at 2.5 Gbit/s. The whole system is(More)
