3 LAV front-end electronics LAV electronics channel working principle 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati3  Split the input signal into two copies: 1 copy to comparator + 1 copy to analog sums  Clamp the signal preserving its width, wide dynamical range is expected (MIP 70 MeV ~ 10 mV, high energy γ ~ 1V)  Amplify the signal and compare with 2 thresholds  Each threshold is independently adjustable up to 250 mV  Produce an LVDS signal and send the signal to the digital read out board 16ch IN Analog Analog 32ch OUT LVDS LVDS CANopen IN OUT VME custom power High threshold Clamp Amp 6x Compare Lowthreshold LVDS LVDS Split to analog sum Charge reconstruction algorithm The actual dependence of Q on ToT can be obtained using a fit to the distribution of Q vs. ToT. This relation is in principle the same for all the LAV PMTs. The sensitivity of the method is reduced at high charge due to the exponential dependence of Q on ToT. Measure ToT vs. charge using QDC and TDC Measure ToT vs. charge using QDC and TDC only during calibration not during experiment Fit the function Q(ToT) (i.e. polynomial function) Fit the function Q(ToT) (i.e. polynomial function) During data taking, measure the time using a TDC only During data taking, measure the time using a TDC only Charge reconstruction in NA62 LAV To TDC

5 Test stand at CERN Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati5  The LAV front-end electronic test stand has been moved to CERN to allow in situ calibration and testing of the boards  Test of all the 86 boards have been performed at CERN by F. Gonnella, V. Kozhuharov, S. Martellotti, M. Moulson  The facility will be also used to characterize the boards we have provided to CHOD and CHANTI 3 September 2014

6 Board modification is done  All modified boards have been delivered, mounted and tested.  5 boards have problems, 1 is still in Frascati  83/89 boards are ready  81/81 are installed  we have only 2 fully working spares  Investigations to fix problems on the remaining 5 spare is ongoing Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati6 3 September 2014 Thanks to Katelyn Fariss and Mia de los Reyes!

7 Hysteresis ( hist ə ’ri:sis )  Time of threshold is measured with two different pulse setups:  The mean values of the ToT distributions in the two setups are evaluated  Hysteresis is evaluated with the following formula:  Note that this strategy does not imply any knowledge on the threshold. 11 February 2014Francesco Gonnella - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati7 threshold 5ns20ns5ns20ns

8 Hysteresis 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati8  The hysteresis has been correctly modified

9 Threshold offset 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati9  The new threshold offset is lower  we gain some mV in sensitivity

10 Threshold offset channel by channel 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati10  The offset is independent from the channel number

11 Calibration slope vs channel 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati11  The amplification is dependent on the channel number, i.e. on the track length

12 Calibration-line slope 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati12  The calibration-line slopes were not altered by the hysteresis modification

13 Strange Time-over-Threshold 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati13  In few channels we have a peculiar ToT

14 Time resolution 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati14  The time resolution is not effected from the hysteresis modification

15 Time resolution vs channel 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati15  There is a clear dependence of the time resolution on the channel number and not on the mezzanine. This is under investigation.

16 Efficiency drop 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati16  Before hysteresis modification: there were a drop in the efficiency curve for 18% of channel in leading only and 20% of channel in leading and training  After hysteresis modification: the drop in all the efficiency curves disappeared!

17 Conclusions 3 September 2014Silvia Martellotti - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati17  Boards were modified, re assembled and tested in time  We have 81/81 installed boards and 2 spares  We will work to repair the 5 boards with some problems  The performance is improved, not only the hysteresis:  Efficiency drops disappeared  We can now safely go down in threshold to 5 mV (even 4 if we smartly swap high and low threshold)
