Title: FPIX1: An advanced pixel readout chip

Abstract

At Fermilab, a pixel detector for BTeV is proposed for installation a few millimeters from the beam. Its information will be used in on-line track finding for the lowest level trigger system. This requires a high-speed readout and immediate data transfer from the pixel chip to the trigger processor. It is also believed that a 2-4 bits of analog information is required to achieve the targeted spatial resolution [1] with 50{micro} wide pixels. Our first prototype, FPIX0 [2], is now being used in a beam test to confirm physics simulations and to determine the required resolution of the analog ''information''. Our 2nd prototype, FPIX1, is a 160X18 pixel readout chip compatible with the ATLAS family of detectors. We have build and tested 4 FPIX1-detector assemblies. FPIX1 is realized in the HP 0.5{micro} process. The main features of FPIX1 are: 2bit flash ADC on each cell for maximum speed; Triggered or stand alone operation; and High speed sparse and time ordered Readout.
