Electronics for the SuperNEMO experiment, with focus on Control and ReadOut

Abstract : SuperNEMO (SN) is the next-generation neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) experiment based on a tracking plus calorimetry technique. The construction of the demonstrator module has started in 2013 and its installation is expected in 2014 in LSM underground laboratory (France). The SN experiment is designed to measure both energy and time of flight of each beta particle emitted from ββ decays.The demonstrator is made of a calorimeter detector (712 channels) associated to a tracking detector (6102 channels). These detectors front-end electronics use an unified architecture based on six similar crates that each host up to 20 Front-End Boards (FEB) and 1 Control board (SN_CROB). The FEBs perform the acquisition of the detector channels. The SN_CROB board gathers the front-end data from the calorimeter or tracker FEBs and sends them through Ethernet link to the data acquisition (DAQ) system. It extracts the Trigger Primitive (TP) from the front-end data and sends them through serial link to the Trigger Board (SN_TB). Moreover the SN_CROB board distributes the clock, the trigger and the control signals for all the boards in a crate. It can also provide its own clock.
