FEBEX data acquisition

For the supporting of the experiments at GSI a completely new data acquisition system is developed in Experiment-Electronics Department of GSI. The main hardware component of the system is a FEBEX module with 14-bit pipe-lining ADC (50 MHz or 100 MHz).

Its VHDL core features a “self-triggering” (programmable Fast Trapezoidal Filter for hit finding), hit’s energy measurement (programmable Energy Trapezoidal Filter) and block data transfer via optical link with 2 G-bit per second speed (GOSIP interface).

The FEBEX boards are designed to work with globally triggered DAQ systems by accepting user defined trigger windows.
