Directional detection of galactic Dark Matter requires 3D reconstruction of low energy nuclear recoils tracks. A dedicated acquisition electronics with auto triggering feature and a real time track reconstruction software have been developed within the framework of the MIMAC project of detector. This auto-triggered acquisition electronic uses embedded processing to reduce data transfer to its useful part only, i.e. decoded coordinates of hit tracks and corresponding energy measurements. An acquisition software with on-line monitoring and 3D track reconstruction is also presented.
A front end ASIC (BiCMOS-SiGe 0.35 um) has been developed within the framework of the MIMAC detector project, which aims at directional detection of non-baryonic Dark Matter. This search strategy requires 3D reconstruction of low energy (keV) tracks with a gazeous uTPC. The development of this front end ASIC is a key point in this project, allowing the 3D track reconstruction. Each ASIC monitors 16 strips of pixels with charge preamplifiers and their time over threshold is provided in real time by current discriminators via two serializing LVDS links working at 320 MHz. The charge is summed over the 16 strips and provided via a shaper. These specifications have been chosen in order to build an auto triggered electronic. An acquisition board and the related software were developed in order to validate this methodology on a prototype cha...
In this paper, we present two circuits designed for pulse readout of a semiconductor PET system: a fast low noise low power front-end preamplifier/shaper, and the processing circuit performing time tagging, energy measurement and digital interfacing with the data acquisition system. Considerations on noise, speed and power consumption are discussed. The system level electronics architecture and its optimization according to the detector architecture is presented. Results of the circuits caracteristics are also presented.
The paper presents a 16-channel amplifier-discriminator designed in BiCMOS technology. It will be used for the binary parallel readout of gas-filled detectors being designed at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. The circuit (named AMS211) has been manufactured. The measured transimpedance gain (400 KΩ), bandwidth (25 MHz) and noise (1570 e−+95 e−/pF ENC) well match the simulated results. The discriminator thresholds are individually controlled by built-in Digital to Analogue Converter. The experience gained with a first prototype of readout electronics indicates that the AMS211 should meet our requirements.
