In this paper a 0.13 μm CMOS front-end for drift chambers is presented. The front-end presents characteristics of low power consumption, which are well-suited in order to implement the cluster counting technique for particles identification. The front-end consists of a Variable Gain Amplifier (VGA) with 0, 10 and 20 dB gain steps and 1 GSa/s 6 bits Analog to Digital Converter (ADC). The VGA power consumption has been optimized according to the selected gain setting. The VGA power consumption is 8.4 mA, 9.4 Ma, 10.6 mA for 0, 10, 20 dB gain, respectively.

Abstract

In this paper a 0.13 μm CMOS front-end for drift chambers is presented. The front-end presents characteristics of low power consumption, which are well-suited in order to implement the cluster counting technique for particles identification. The front-end consists of a Variable Gain Amplifier (VGA) with 0, 10 and 20 dB gain steps and 1 GSa/s 6 bits Analog to Digital Converter (ADC). The VGA power consumption has been optimized according to the selected gain setting. The VGA power consumption is 8.4 mA, 9.4 Ma, 10.6 mA for 0, 10, 20 dB gain, respectively.
