2 Challenges for CHIPIX65 Design of innovative electronics in strategic area of INFN, using the “novel” CMOS 65nm technology, with a large participation of INFN community INFN is one of founding members of RD53, an international collaboration for the R&D phase of an innovative chip for the pixel detector of ATLAS and CMS at HL_LHC, and the goals of RD53 are the main focus of CHIPIX65 milestones: Small pixels: 50x50um2 (or 25x100um2) Large chips: >2cm x 2cm ( ~1 billion transistors) Hit rates: ~2 GHz/cm2 Radiation: 1Grad, 1016 neu/cm2 (unprecedented) Trigger: 1MHz, 10us (~100x buffering and readout) Low power - Low mass systems L.

7 Digital Pixel architecture
Perugia Goal: Simulation and optimization of pixel chip architectures to be implemented in prospective next generation pixel readout chips. VEPIX53: a flexible Verification Environment for PIXel chips in RD53 in SystemVerilog + UVM (collaboration with RD53, ). DUT: behavioral, time-based description of a simple pixel chip with basic functionality (conversion of hits into discriminator outputs, computation of hit time of arrival and amplitude, trigger selection, column arbitration). UVM verification components connected to interfaces defined in DUT: hit generation (different classes of typical detector hits can be generated) monitoring of pixel chip input and output conformity checks and statistics collection.

19 October submission: IP-block
Esercizio di floorplanning che Indica che far stare tutto su di un solo IP-block, e’ difficile e presenta svantaggi. Bandgap: includere versioni CERN, CPPM per confronto DAC: Includere anche disegno DAC in tensione di Praga SRAM: Milano abbisogna di piu’ spazio se possibile (256x256 invece di 128x256 celle) L. Demaria - INFN activities of CHIPIX65

20 October submission – VFE block
1) One core AREA with ANALOG testing for ASYNC design(PAVIA) 2) One core AREA with ANALOG testing of SYNC design (Torino) 3) One core AREA with simple digital readout and measurement of ToT (slow and fast ToT) 1 3 2 L. Demaria - INFN activities of CHIPIX65

21 Simulazione, 5 eventi singolo pixel in vari casi, si vede bene il clock del ToT e il caso di timeout nel conteggio del ToT CHIPIX65 L. Demaria - INFN activities of CHIPIX65

22 I/O group Responsabile R. Beccherle
1) I/O: Evaluation and definition of I/O protocols supporting 2Gbps or higher serial links, command based triggering up to 1MHz rate and minimum dead-time. - 80Mbps or higher serial input, with command decoder to configure and operate the chip. Evaluation of a slow control protocol. Command and Clock should be encoded on a single line. - 2Gbps Serial Output links will require to evaluate different output data formats and compression alternatives. - A duplex solution where all I/O takes place on a single serial connection should be considered. Investigation of link redundancy schemes to be eventually used on less data demanding layers. 2) Interfaces: Evaluation of compatibility with defined interfaces such as LPGBT. 3) IP blocks related to I/O: interface driver, clock recovery, clock multiplier methods, LVDS driver and receivers. [Work to be shared with the IP group] 4) Off chip connectivity: Calculation, Simulation and Test of transmission performance with realistic interconnects. I/O should not stop at the chip pads but extend to the system immediately outside the chip. High speed cables and protocols and even test interfaces. Therefore we should develop a specification for the system around it and a test setup. L. Demaria - INFN activities of CHIPIX65

23 Main Milestones for 2015 Test of first IP-blocks 1-4-2015
Measurement of SEU rate with SRAM Test of small pixel array Definition of Very Front End analog architectures Test of all IP-block prototypes L. Demaria - INFN activities of CHIPIX65

24 Conclusions Good starting of the CHIPIX65 project
Layout in TSMC 65nm in 5 out of 6 sites. With CERN/TSMC contract approved, from September all groups will be capable of working with TSMC 65nm Work on IP-block and VFE-analog going very well For 2015 INFN will focus more on adding complex digital architecture in a small pixel array / matrix of about 3x4 mm2 L.
