Temperature characterization of the CITIROC front-end chip of the ASTRI SST-2M Cherenkov camera

The Cherenkov Imaging Telescope Integrated Read Out Chip, CITIROC, is the front-end chip of the camera for the ASTRI SST-2M, one of the prototypes for the small sized telescopes of the Cherenkov

Procedures for the relative calibration of the SiPM gain on ASTRI SST-2M camera

ASTRI SST-2M is one of the prototypes of the small size class of telescopes proposed for the Cherenkov Telescope Array. Its optical design is based on a dual-mirror Schwarzschild-Couder

Use of the Peak-Detector mode for gain calibration of SiPM sensors with ASIC CITIROC read-out

The peak detector operation mode is illustrated and how this can be used to calibrate the SiPM gain without the need of external light sources to demonstrate the validity of the method.

The software architecture of the camera for the ASTRI SST-2M prototype for the Cherenkov Telescope Array

The purpose of this contribution is to present the current status of the software architecture of the ASTRI SST-2M Cherenkov Camera, and to analyze the architectural model that describes how the camera software is organized as a set of communicating blocks.
