Title: Digital optical module design for PINGU

The Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade (PINGU) will require optical sensors with similar performance as the digital optical modules (DOMs) of IceCube, but implemented in a higher-density array. A new design for the PINGU DOM (PDOM) is being pursued that retains the proven mechanical elements of the IceCube DOM, yet takes advantage of recently commercialized high-speed digitizer technology. The main features of the proposed PDOM electronics are discussed, along with status and plans for development. Proposed modifications to the IceCube string architecture that will accommodate the smaller vertical PDOM spacing are presented.
