The electronics of ALICE Dimuon tracking chambers

Abstract : The muon spectrometer is one of the main detection system of ALICE, the dedicated heavy-ion experiment at CERN LHC. The muon tracking system consists of five cathodepad chamber station (ST) with two detection planes each. The readout architecture, based on dedicated FE boards, embedded digital crates and a trigger dispatcher crate and the process to reach the electronics final design will be described, as well as the production and the tests of the 19.600 FE boards. Finally, the integration of ST1 at CERN (including EMC issues and commissioning) will be highlighted.
