DiRICH - Full Module

And here it is, the complete module for the Hades and CBM RICH detectors: 6 64-channel MC-PMTs and all electronics for read-out

  • The backplane (10x15cm) holds all components. 14 layers in the PCB route all analog and digital signals as well as power
  • The power module regulates all necessary supply voltages and provides the HV connection
  • The concentrator module connects to the central DAQ and provides trigger and slow-control to all read-out modules
  • The DiRich front-end module with in-FPGA TDC and the analog preamplifier stage, see two posts below

An extensive description of the features can be found on a poster, presented at TWEPP 2016.
