Description: Hadron colliders can be an abundant source of heavy flavor, but pose a challenge to isolate the physics signals from the high backgrounds. The upgraded CDFII detector, with its precise tracking capabilities and powerful trigger system, is well equipped for this task. The detector is described with an emphasis on actual performance and on techniques to maximize the heavy flavor yield. Some first heavy flavor results are summarized.
