Development of modern digital microelectronic systems and Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) for Physics
Particle tracking detectors for High Energy Physics need a new readout technique to cope with the increase of the collision rate foreseen for the High Luminosity LHC upgrade. The ''MPA-SSA project'' is part of the CMS Tracker upgrade for the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC). This detector must be capable of selecting at front-end level the interesting particle and of providing them continuously to the back-end. In order to implement this feature a new module, called ''Pixel Strip'' or ''PS'' module, is under development. This module is composed by pixelated and strip sensors which require two separated front-end readout ASIC. This project aims to design these two ASICs: the Macro Pixel ASIC (MPA), a readout ASIC for a pixelated sensors that includes high complexity digital logic for particle selection and very low power density, and the Short Strip ASIC (SSA), a readout ASIC for strip sensor which features high-speed synchronous communication. In this talk, we will focus on the ASIC design workflow for High Energy Physics and explain how it works on the example of Short Strip ASIC (SSA) ASIC.
