DISCRIMINATOR FOR TIMESTAMPING IN STRIP DETECTOR READOUT INTEGRATED CIRCUITS


Abstract

This paper presents the design of a low-power comparator for timestamping purposes in multichannel integrated circuit for silicon strip detectors’ readout. A brief introduction to an analog front-end electronics with two signal paths is presented. Moreover, issues regarding accuracy of timestamp determination and details of 3-stage comparator architecture are included.
