Title: Development of FELIX based readout system for HV-CMOS sensor testbeam

Abstract

The High Voltage CMOS (HV-CMOS) sensors are extensively investigated by the ATLAS collaboration for the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) upgrade of the Inner Tracker (ITk) detector. The HV-CMOS technology is a commercial integrated circuit process with the advantages of monolithic readout and fast charge collection. A front-end test platform of CaRIBOu (Control and Readout Itk BOard) and a testbeam Telescope based on the ATLAS IBL (Insertable B-Layer) silicon pixel modules, have been developed for the HV-CMOS sensor study and characterization in testbeam experiments. The Front-End LInk eXchange (FELIX) system is a newapproach to function as the gateway between detector front-end electronics and the commodity switched network in the ATLAS upgrade. A FELIX based readout system has been developed for both the CaRIBOu and the testbeam Telescope. It has been deployed successfully in the testbeam at theCERNSPS H8 beamline in August 2017. The test results show that the readout system is capable of sensor calibration and readout of a high-density pixel detector with high trigger rate in testbeam experiments.
