Développement d’un circuit de lecture pour un calorimètre électromagnétique ultra-granulaire

Abstract : This work takes place in the design project of the electromagnetic calorimeter for the future International Linear Collider (ILC) within the CALICE collaboration. The final calorimeter will be made of 82 million of PIN diodes; this is where the term “high granularity” comes from. The need for a read-out ASIC is a consequence of this high number of detectors, knowing that the dimensions of the electromagnetic calorimeter are a big constraint: the standard electronics is not an option. This work starts from an existing ASIC called SKIROC2. This state-of-the-art read-out chip has been designed by the Omega laboratory, a member of the CALICE collaboration. The performances on testboard and in the detector environment have been measured. It allowed to conclude on the advantages and drawbacks of using SKIROC2 in the calorimeter. After that the focus has been made on the design of a new read-out chip based on SKIROC2. The main goal was to preserve the good performances of SKIROC2 while trying to correct the encountered issues. This new ASIC has been developped in a newly released technology available during the design phase. Therefore the design has been started from scratch. The final chip is composed of building blocks rather than a ready-to-use read-out chip. Three charge preamplifier designs have been tested, the general architecture of a read-out channel being largely inspired by SKIROC2.
