Paper Abstract

The chip XA1.3, low noise, self-triggered, data-driven and sparse readout multichannel front-end integrated circuit (ASICs), underwent to extensive calibration and tests, included temperature tests and power consumption tests. We describe the results of the tests and calibration and their impact, as front-end of the silicon micro-strip detectors, on the scientific performances of SuperAGILE experiment.
