New electronics for the surface detectors of the Pierre Auger Observatory

Abstract : The surface detector array of the Pierre Auger Observatory consists of 1660 water Cherenkov detectors that sample the charged particles and photons of energetic cosmic ray air showers at the ground. In the framework of the planned upgrade of the Auger Observatory, AugerPrime, new electronics has been designed for the surface detectors. The electronics upgrade includes higher sampling frequency, increased dynamic range, increased processing capability, improved timing with up-to-date GPS receivers, and a better calibration and monitoring system. It will also process the data of the additional scintillator detectors planned for the upgrade.
