Off the Bench!

We are busy at work testing electronic components! The CITIROC is a type of application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) which we are utilizing to read the silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) in our radiation detection system. The image here shows a simulation of the performance of the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) of the CITIROC. The ADC converts the light signal from the radiation detector into a digital signal we can use in digital processing. This test bench is used to check the functionality of our designed electronic system and is critical in the success of our detector!
