DAQ and Controls
Compact And Programmable daTa Acquisition Node (CAPTAN)
The Electronic Systems Engineering department of Fermilab Scientific Computing Division has developed a data acquisition system that is flexible and powerful enough to meet the demands of pixel and strip detectors for high energy physics applications, but also capable of far broader application utility. The individual unit within the system is known as a Compact And Programmable daTa Acquisition Node, or CAPTAN.
Simple DAQ: It is 6” x 6” and, for many systems, the only external connections needed are a 3.3V power supply and a standard Ethernet cable.
Flexible DAQ: A user can stack compatiblae boards in different combinations to give unique functionality.
Scalable DAQ: In addition to the vertical stacking, the stacks can be repeated artbitrarily and conneced with one or many PCs in an Ethernet network.
CAPTAN Pixel Telescope
Rad-Hard Sensor Testing using CAPTAN
The goal is to test new rad-hard sensor candidates for the HL-LHC vertex detector before and after irradiation. CAPTAN is used to readout the DUT both in bench test and beam test.
