Schwiening [SLAC] 29-JUN-07 Progress in expensive PD recording Precision timing detection PROMPT concept T-492 beam test Next Generation readout concepts

2 PD '07 Kobe -- G. Varrner 2 TDC Performance ~0.37ns QDC Performance Inexpensive Options: FPGA based readout ASIC: ATWD, DRS,others (KamLAND, IceCube, MEG, MAGIC) J. Instr. 1 P07001 (2006)

3 PD '07 Kobe -- G. Varrner 3 A Different kind of  Detector 20-30cm vs. 200-800nm (bandwidth 200-1200 MHz) Completely solar powered (tight demands on power) 324 chan. @ 2.6GSa/s ~320ps Measured ~7m Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA)

4 PD '07 Kobe -- G. Varrner 4 Large Analog Bandwidth Recorder and Digitizer with Ordered Readout [LABRADOR] 8+1 chan. * 256+4 samples Straight Shot RF inputs Random access: Common STOP acquisition 3.2 x 2.9 mm Conversion in 21  s (all 2340 samples) Data transfer takes 80  s Ready for next event in ~50  s Switched Capacitor Array (SCA) Massively parallel Wilkinson ADC array

6 PD '07 Kobe -- G. Varrner 6 LABRADOR sampling & linearity Excellent linearity Sampling rates up to 4 GSa/s with voltage overdrive 2.6GSa/s 12-bit ADC

9 PD '07 Kobe -- G. Varrner 9 Finer Calibration 600MHz Clock Estimated Limit

10 PD '07 Kobe -- G. Varrner 10 High Speed sampling LABRADORCommercial Sampling speed 1-3.7 GSa/s2 GSa/s Bits/ENOBs12/9-108/7.4 Power/Chan.<= 0.05W5-10W

11 PD '07 Kobe -- G. Varrner 11 Good performance, but –CFD not compact, rate dependent (SLAC 16 channel card is 9U) –High-power, potentially noisy if inside detector –Buffer depth limitations (already an issue for TOF upgrade) Precision Timing Recording Options Constant Fraction Discriminator + Multi-Hit TDC Measurements from ALICE-TOF Without INL compensation After INL compensation +

12 PD '07 Kobe -- G. Varrner 12 Exploration Direction For high channel counts, prefer to do the measurement at the photodetector (avoids cables which take up space and leads to dispersion for fast timing signals) Noise (interference) inside detector No fast discriminators (power/heat) Precision timing  waveform sampling Explore different photo-detectors Highly integrated detector & electronics Lower gain Magnetic field robustness Modular, cost effective in large volumes (Advanced focusing DIRC could be 250,000 channels)
