The SVX II silicon vertex detector at CDF

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Silicon Vertex detector (SVX II) for the CDF experiment at the Tevatron p{anti p} collider is a 3-barrel 5-layer device with double-sided, AC-coupled silicon strip detectors. The readout is based on a custom IC, the SVX3 chip, capable of simultaneous acquisition, digitization and readout operation (dead-timeless). In this paper we report on the SVX II design and project status including mechanical design, frontend electronics, and data acquisition.
