CHALLENGING TERA09

A 64-channels current-to-frequency converter for high-intensity input currents

TERA09 is our latest custom readout chip developed thanks to a technology transfer with the Turin section of the INFN, DE.TEC.TOR.’s partner since its foundation. This chip has been designed thus to keep a readout logic backward compatibility with our portfolio products  while introducing two additional order of magnitude in its input signal dynamic range.

Thanks to its charge sensitivity, the new features introduced in the last upgrade and the reliability proved by the product family, TERA09 is currently  protagonist of our new products development.

TERA09 technicalities

  • 64 channels current-to-frequency converter
  • Bipolar input currents in a  10^7 dynamic range
  • Input current 0.1 nA ÷ 40 µA, up to 3mA
  • Charge sensitivity = 200-660 fC

 

This chip has been designed with the aim to deal with new compact particle accelerators based on superconductive technology and providing high-intensity pulsed-beams. Thanks to that, TERA09 is today involved as readout electronics for innovative ionization chambers in our Flash Therapy  R&D project.
