Sixth Common ATLAS CMS ElectronicS
Workshop for LHC upgrades


CERN, 24 - 26 April 2018

This workshop will be dedicated to electronic issues for upgrades, focusing on subjects where common features or developments are likely. Developments for both upgrades for Phase I and upgrades for high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) will be included. The following main areas will be covered:  

  • Front-end electronics developments for Phase I and HL-LHC
  • Electronics systems for triggering at Phase I and HL-LHC, including level-1 tracking trigger and the use of modular electronics standards such as xTCA
  • Electronics systems for DAQ and DCS at HL-LHC
  • High precision timing measurement and clock distribution systems
  • Optical and electrical links
  • Power distribution
  • IC technologies and radiation hardness issues
  • Progress on upgrades for HL-LHC

Oral presentations will be made by invitation. A poster session will be organised during the first evening social event; abstracts will have to be submitted on the indico page. More details can be provided by contacting a member of the programme committee.
