will cover all aspects of electronics for particle physics experiments, and accelerator instrumentation of general interest to users.
LHC experiments (and their operational experience) will remain a focus of the meeting but a strong emphasis on R&D for future experimentation will be maintained, such as SLHC, CLIC, ILC, neutrino facilities as well as other particle and astroparticle physics experiments.
Key purposes include:
– to present results and original concepts for electronic research and development relevant to experiments as well as accelerator and beam instrumentation at future facilities
– to review the status of electronics for the LHC experiments
– to identify and encourage common efforts for the development of electronics
– to promote information exchange and collaboration in the relevant engineering and physics communities.
In addition, a representative from Samtec will deliver the following presentation:
FireFly and Copper Flyover presented by Marc Verdiell, Samtec Optical Group
“Modern data acquisition techniques employed in particle physics create large amounts of digital data that must be transmitted to remote electronics and computers for further processing. Increasingly, bandwidth requirements preclude the use of PCB traces and traditional copper cabling, even for modest interconnection length. Fortunately, novel copper and optical flyover solutions are being developed to go around the limits of traditional PCB and cabling, enabling transport of data at rates exceeding 28 Gb/s per lane over a range of distances. We will describe advances in miniature, very high speed connectors, micro-coax and micro-twinax cabling, and on board optical transceivers that can meet present and future interconnect challenges. We will show how they can be customized to the harsh environment and limited space requirements that are typical of these applications.”
