THE PERFORMANCE OF THE FADC SYSTEM FOR THE ZEUS CENTRAL TRACKING DETECTOR

Abstract:
The Central Tracking Detector of the ZEUS experiment uses a Flash Analogue to Digital Converter (FADC) read-out system to measure the arrival time of ionisation at sense wires as well as the charge deposited. A digitisation frequency of 104MHz is used and the data is written to pipelined data stores. A Digital Signal Processor is used to control the main functions on the card as well as perform data parameterisation and compression. Test and operational performance results from the first electron-proton interactions are presented.
