The ampliier-shaper-discriminator chip ASD-8, developed by the University o f P ennsylvania for drift chamber applications in high rate environments, is used in large detector systems in the HERA-B experiment. We report on the results of tests performed on some 25 000 chips and on the design and tests of the PC-boards. The so far largest system employing ASD-8 chips is the HERA-B Outer Tracker with about 120 000 drift chamberchannels. We present rst experience with the grounding scheme, noise… CONTINUE READING
