High-Speed Data Acquisition Systems for Particle Detectors
Kursraum 2 (Zentrum für Datenverarbeitung, JGU Mainz)
Zentrum für Datenverarbeitung, JGU Mainz
Anselm-Franz-von-Bentzel-Weg 12<br>55128 Mainz
The School addresses to master students, Ph.D. students, and postdoctoral researchers in physics aiming to work with data acquisition systems (DAQ). It will introduce typical concepts and designs of DAQs and associated electronics enabling the handling of high data rates, preserving relevant signal information, or making smart trigger decisions.
Morning sessions will consist of lectures, which cover the fundamentals and prepare for the afternoon laboratories. Working in small groups, the participants will get acquainted with the subjects through practical exercises: FPGA and GPU programming, circuit simulation and system design.
