Name: Silicon Vertex Detector Readout - ver 2(SVX2) Designer: T. Zimmerman, LBNL
Process: UTMC 1.2µ CMOS Experiment:Flat panel medical X-ray imaging
Febrication Date: 1996 Size: 6.3 mm x 8.9 mm

SVX2wafer.jpg The SVX2 is a 128 channel silicon strip readout chip that is meant to interface with detectors having a pitch of about 50 µ. The chip is designed to run with beam crossings of 396 nsec. The chip has an analog pipeline to provide a delay for a level 1 trigger to be formed. Upon receiving a level 1 trigger, the chip stops acquiring data. The selected data is then digitized, sparsified and readout.
