System Development

The need for bigger and faster multi channel detectors generates ever growing amounts of data.

Deploying modern integrated electronics is required to build an adequate data acquisition system. It has to control the detector, to process analog data, to convert the analog signals into digital values and store data in computer memory. Algorithms are working on raw data and generating real images and spectra. A challenging part of data acquisition is the extraction of an information signal from a noisy detector output which is usually carried out by analog filtering stages integrated in one silicon chip. To combine the various components of electronics sophisticated printed circuit boards and delicate mountings are necessary. We improve our detector developments by the design of readout electronics. In cooperation with partners the MPG HLL integrates complex working detector systems.
