Design of a fast gated charge integrating front end for use in high density CAMAC and fastbus modules
This paper describes the design principles of two versions of a gated charge integrating front end for use with high energy physics particle detectors. The current integration, gate and clear problems are discussed. A high slew rate design and its implementation on a very small printed circuit board is presented. The design of a 32 channel, 12 bit CAMAC charge integrating ADC is outlined.
