INtelligent, Fast, Interconnected and Efficient devices for Frontier Exploitation in Research and Industry


Work Packages


Please find here below the report on the WP1 workpackage, with the introduction first here below and then attached in a .pdf format the rest of the report. This corresponds to the Report INFIERI is writing for each Period of the project. The first 18 months have been gathered in our report and there will be another one reporting on the 3rd year followed by the one corresponding to the 4th year of the project. This report has been approved by the INFIERI Publication Board and is edited by: 

Editors: Garret Cotter (Oxford University), Fabrizio Palla (INFN-Pisa), Aurore Savoy-Navarro (University Paris-Diderot/CNRS & INFN-Pisa), Kristian Zarb-Adami (Oxford University) on the basis of the material provided by CNRS, INFN, LIP, NIKHEF, UC3M, UOXF 

WP1 – intelligent Front-End Data Processing reduction, Period 1

The originality and innovative aspects of our project is by introducing advanced data reduction processing at the Front-End (on detector) Electronics (FEE) level, in all the applications considered by INFIERI. This is based on a real time understanding of the Physics or possible diagnoses and has been widely addressed and studied in the first part of the project by an intense activity on “feasibility studies”. It also requires a deep understanding and close handling on the development of the FEE associated to the instruments. This is the case in this project with a FE technology related mainly to the SiPM technology and new Si strips and pixel FEE ASIC developments. Members of the INFIERI network are taking an active part to the development of these two types of FEE devices. The SiPM technology is widely used in particle Physics and more and more in Medical Physics as well as Astrophysics. Pixel technology is widely used in Particle Physics but also in Medical Imaging application such as Medipix.
