Simulated Radiation Levels and Current Test Status for ATLAS MDT Front-End Electronics

The ATLAS policy on radiation-tolerant electronics makes a rather drastic simplification: it is assumed that the worst-case simulated radiation level (SRL) applies to all instances of a particular electronic component. This is of course not the case. In many cases the cost of making all instances of a component sufficiently rad-tolerant to survive in the… CONTINUE READING
