07/2014-09/2014 Research Stay
During summer 2014, I had a 2 months research stay at Electrical Engineering-Polytechnical School, University of Sao Paulo, where I worked closely with the microelectronics group at the Polytechnical institute in order to design the SAMPA chip for CERN.
The SAMPA chip is the front-end electronics chip for two of the main detectors Time Projection Chamber (TPC) and Muon Chamber (MCH) at ALICE. This is a part of update for RUN3 which foresees to start in 2018.
The main objective of the stay was to design complete blocks of Digital-to-Analog converter (DAC) and an analog buffer in order to drive an output of 50 pF. The blocks were integrated with the whole analog front-end in order to verify the whole system functionality.
