Paper Abstract

The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment is a fixed-target heavy-ion physics experiment. It is currently being constructed at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Darmstadt, Germany. The physics goal of the experiment are studies of nuclear matter at highest baryonic densities. This requires the usage of fast and radiation-hard detectors equipped with self-triggering read-out electronics. The Silicon Tracking System (STS) is the essential tracking detector of the CBM and the experimental conditions pose demanding requirements in terms of channel density and read-out bandwidth. The STS-XYTER ASIC is dedicated to the readout of the double-sided silicon micro-strip sensors and it provides self-triggered hit detection for 128 channels with 5-bit ADC charge and 14-bit timing information. Prototype detector modules The STS-XYTER ASIC is dedicated to the readout of the double-sided silicon micro-strip sensors and it provides self- triggered hit detection for 128 channels with 5-bit ADC charge and 14-bit timing information. Prototype detector modules comprising a 40×60mm2 sensor, micro-cables and two single ASICs bonded onto a prototype front-end board each have been assembled. The chip has been integrated in the full read-out chain and the system performance evaluated in a test experiment on a proton beam line at COSY, Research Center Juelich, Germany. This contribution will present an overview of the detector readout, the experimental setup and some preliminary results.
