Detectors Assembly
The new “Analog Pipeline Chip”
Strip Detector Module
The APC128 readout chip and its decoder were re-designed in
collaboration between DESY, PSI (Villigen, Switzerland) and KIP
(Heidelberg, Germany) and manufactured in 0.25 um process by
UMC (Taiwan).

Preamplifier’s Circuitry
Ring-shaped P-FET from the
“PSI_025V2_core” library
P-FET transistors enclosed in
the N-well are better isolated
from the P-substrate leakage
currents. Their usage in the
preamplifier’s feedback circuitry requires negative bias
voltages with respect to the
signal ground.
To prevent high stress current
density during plasma exposure
the gate voltage must be always
above the substrate potential *
The strip pitch = 25 µm, the readout pitch = 75 µm (every third strip has an
analog readout). The charge sharing between intermediate and readout strips
allows for a precise coordinate measurement: hit residuals for tracks 10-15 µm.
A serial readout of two detectors (2 x 640) strips with 1 µs / channel requires
1.3 ms for the data processing with a continuously cycling acquisition program
(sequencer code). The APC settings are reloaded regularly making the readout
rather stable against single event upsets.
Pad detectors
The old APC128 SACMOS radiation damage studies*
A cumulative dose above 100 kRad is responsible for the pedestal and hence
readout amplitude lowering. This effect is attributed to the bulk leakage current
at the preamplifier's input. The influence of impurities trapped in the silicon onto
signal could be parameterized and investigated in the ASIC design package with
an equivalent current source.
Front-end functions (less critical to the choice of components):
Signal buffering, Clock distribution, Supply regeneration

Pad Detector Module
Pad Front-end Electronics
APC128 UMC.25 specifications:
• 128 channels, each containing an analog pipeline with a depth of
32 storage capacitors
• ENC (1σ) 400±100 e (the switching noise has a large contribution)
• Shaping time constant 1.5±0.3 µs
• Minimum sensitivity 5±1 mV/fC; the signal amplification and
processing is possible by sequencer code
The online Trigger Software
Single event upset may force a trigger signal. The coincidence with other
H1 sub-detectors (SPACAL, Veto counters etc.) reduces a risk of a
false trigger. All signal conditions and relations are synchronized to
the clock frequency to protect the trigger algorithm against random
data changes .
Memory bit flips were crucial for the frequent trigger masks, therefore the
predefined track patterns were coded as combinatorial logics.
Single event latch-up can freeze data bits distorting the trigger patterns.
A self-latch scheme for input signals with a common reset is utilized
to avoid combinations with permanent "1". Mask permutations are
written to compensate for stuck signals or inefficient pads.
The front-end boards for the detector control and the trigger data
processing (ALTERA chip EP20K300E is the core of each board):
PRO/A readout chip
• Manipulating the PRO/A steering codes, setting trigger thresholds
• Synchronization of all detector pulses to HERA clock frequency
• Track validation with masks and computing of the track topology
• Accumulating and transmitting of raw data from the silicon pads
• 32 channels with digital and
analog outputs with controlled
ON / OFF function and internal
or external trigger thresholds
• Dynamic input range 35±1 dB
• Controlled gain 15…30 mV / fC
• ENC (1σ) 600±100 e
• Noise slope 15±5 e / pF
• Shaping time constant 30±1 ns
• Has a calibration pulse mode
96 channels
• Temperature
with a CAN chip.
Radiation Background
Radiation Monitor for H1
Intense background components:
• Synchrotron radiation:
The synchrotron radiation fan
does not enter the H1 facility
directly but some part of it
scatters from absorbers towards the detector and does
heat the beam line optics that
causes a gas evaporation and
worsens the vacuum. In turn
this increases a
Soft failures are resolved by the front-end reinitializing
Radiation Monitor for HERA
The radiation monitor rate depends
on the vacuum in HERA, therefore for
the given conditions the background
can be predicted in the first approximation from the current product:
Reaction to the beam currents
Dose rate measurement with Pads
The trigger algorithm of the pad detector was extended to monitor online
the particle flux through the silicon. The multiplicities of triggered pads are
summed up within 1 second, during the next second the result obtained is
sent out while the next integral is being prepared.
One silicon sensor (20 cm2)
is taken as an area unit for
the radiation monitor. The
maximum rate over 48 pad
detector modules is being

3. To ensure a reliable operation in the environment with radiation
load a steady HERA background control and a fast response on
radiation effects in the silicon are very important to keep the
exposure rate below 10 kRad/year.
Auxiliary functions:
The PRO/A readout chip was designed in collaboration
between DESY Zeuthen and IDE AS (Oslo, Norway) and
manufactured in 1.2 µm N-well CMOS process by AMS.

functionality with the total ionizing dose up
to 3.2 MRad:
2. As much functionality as possible should be implemented into the
program algorithm. It is always easier to recompile the design activating new FPGA resources than to repair the hardware.

384 channels
Design Outlook
1. Analog circuits should have 100% feedback, i.e. voltage repeaters
must be used rather than amplifiers. In any case the digital circuitry
is preferable because it operates with two robust levels.
• Monitoring the radiation
* “Plasma-charging damage in ultra-thin gate oxide”, Kin P. Cheung,
Microelectronics Reliability 40 (2000), pp. 1981-1986.
Operation experience:
• Monitoring the multiplicity
of triggered pads
• Individual mode / subtraction
of neighboring channels for the
common mode suppression
The signal ground is separated from the substrate and the operating (.)
of the push-pull cascade is shifted by +0.6 V. Now the gate voltage of
the feedback transistors could be selected in the range (0…+0.6) V.
A linear correlation between the radiation
monitor rate and the ionization current in
the central trackers is used for chambers
to control their “turn on” conditions to
prevent their high voltage trips.
The instantaneous count rate can be helpful for the HERA crew as a
feedback from the detector during injection and the beam steering:
In coincidence with some other counters the radiation monitor can be
used for an automatic beam dump in a case of severe radiation load.
Correlation with scintillation counter rates
Measuring the cumulative dose
becomes possible with silicon
detectors (besides beam losses
when the energy is released in a
very short time) as all particles
deposit on average the same
energy   2 MeV cm / g
