The IDE3380 SIPHRA is an IC for readout of photon detectors such as such as PMTs, SiPMs, and MPPCs. Among its features are programmable shaping time, programmable attenuation and an internal ADC. Since its release in 2016, the SIPHRA has yielded good results , and radiation testing has proven that it is radiation tolerant and immune to single-event latchups. IDEAS has since 2016 offered the Galao ROIC Development Kit as a means of getting started with the SIPHRA.
Now, IDEAS releases the IDE3380 ASIC Carrier Board. This is a PCB alternative to using a bare die or packaged SIPHRA. The board contains one IDE3380 SIPHRA IC with the needed decoupling, as well as a PT100 temperature sensor. The chip itself is protected by an aluminum cover. Its interface to the user-designed readout board is comprised of two 50-pin board-to-board connectors. The IDE3380 ASIC Carrier Board is a compact solution (32mm x 32mm) that aims to make this IC more accessible, and as a result shortening the user’s development time.
