A scalable readout system (SRS) is designed to provide a general solution for different micro-pattern gas detectors. The system mainly consists of three kinds of modules: the ASIC card, the Adapter card and the Front-End Card (FEC). The ASIC cards, mounted with particular ASIC chips, are designed for receiving detector signals. The Adapter card is in charge of digitizing the output signals from several ASIC cards. The FEC, edged-mounted with the Adapter, has a FPGA-based reconfigurable logic…

Development of the scalable readout system for micro-pattern gas detectors and other applications

The SRS is intended as a general purpose multi-channel readout solution for a wide range of detector types and detector complexities, with modular topology enabling the integration of different front-end ASICs.

AGET, the GET front-end ASIC, for the readout of the Time Projection Chambers used in nuclear physic experiments

Today with the advent of intense radioactive beams, we have access to nuclear spectroscopy and reaction studies of nuclei far from stability. It has been demonstrated that Time Projection Chambers
