FlashCam: a fully digital camera for the Cherenkov telescope array medium-sized telescopes

The FlashCam concept, its verification process, and its implementation for a 12 m class CTA telescope with PMT-based PDP, expected not only to be more cost efficient but also allows PDPs with different types of photon detectors to be adapted to the FlashCam readout system.
