1 JRA01: ACTAR Collaboration : GANIL, DAPNIA Saclay, CENBG Bordeaux, Univ. Liverpool, Daresbury, GSI, Univ. Santiago de Compostela Objectives: Investigate the best options for the realisation of active target detector concepts for exotic nuclei studies, and define the R&D effort. Task J01-1: Physics constraints and detailed simulations Subtask J01-1-1: Physics constraints Subtask J01-1-1: Simulations Task J01-2: Test modules Subtask J01-2-1: detection/target gas Subtask J01-2-2: Readout chamber Subtask J01-2-3: Magnetic field configuration Task J01-3: Electronics and data acquisition Task J01-4: Particle tracking

8 Task J01-3 Electronics and Data acquisition Evaluation of existing ASICs (L. Pollacco) 3 chips can fulfill the requirements for active targets: — GASSIPLEX (used in MAYA and MAYAITO) — ALTRO (developed for ALICE TPC) — T2K (developed for T2K experiment) Test module under construction in collaboration with Orsay will allow to test ALTRO in 2007 and T2K in 2008
