We report on the recent development of a versatile analog front-end compatible with a negative-ion μ-TPC for a directional dark matter search as well as a dual-phase, next-generation 𝒪(10 kt) liquid argon TPC to study neutrino oscillations, nucleon decay, and astrophysical neutrinos. Although the operating conditions for negative-ion and liquid argon TPCs are quite different (room temperature vs. ∼88 K operation, respectively), the readout electronics requirements are similar. Both require a… 

LTARS: analog readout front-end ASIC for versatile TPC-applications

We designed a versatile analog front-end chip, called LTARS, for TPC-applications, primarily targeted at dual-phase liquid Ar-TPCs for neutrino experiments and negative-ion μ-TPCs for directional
