Production Material for Motherboards

The Mother Board system for the readout of the ATLAS Tile Calorimeter detector consist of 4 sections, together with a mezzanine card located on the first section. The design has been developed and tested by the ATLAS team at the University of Chicago. All sections have been through a pre-production phase and are ready for full production. The mezzanine card will be assembled in early 2001 when production quantities of the TTCrx ASIC are available. Sample quantities of this chip have been used for pre-production testing.

For the production of these boards, the University of Chicago will purchase all components and an outside vendor will be responsible for fabricating and assembling the boards with components provided by the university. Final testing will be done at the university.

The requested quantity of each board is as follows:


Unassembled boards should be returned to the University of Chicago.
