Department Experiment Electronics

The department of Experiment Electronics supports experiments at GSI and FAIR for all electronics relevant tasks. This concerns, among other things, data readout, data acquisition, data analysis, as well as monitoring and control of detectors and detector systems. The departement supports and consults GSI scientists in application and usage of technologies at the forefront of developments.

As a scientific-technical department Experiment Electronics engages in both developments of electronic modules and systems or software as well as consulting, assembly of electronic boards and repairs.

The expertise of the department covers the entire spectrum of the readout, acquisition, control systems and data analysis of experiments and partly the accelerator electronics.

The department of Experiment Electronics has very good facilities for the development and testing as well as for the production of electronics.

The own laboratories and workshops, such as among others the ASIC and the electronics laboratories, manufacture and repair workshops offer a wide range of possibilities for the realization of numerous, partly very demanding projects for the experiments and the accelerator at GSI and FAIR.
