Abstract
A newly developed system for the control and readout of the BELLE silicon v ertex detector (SVD) is described. The system is designed to meet the mecha nical, electrical, and thermal requirements imposed by the BELLE detector. Its primary purpose is the amplification of analog signals from the VA1 fro nt-end integrated circuits, which are used to read the silicon-strip detect ors. It also provides a number of analog and digital functions related to t he control and monitoring of the SVD. Much of the circuitry is implemented using programmable logic and analog devices, which allow a degree a flexibi lity in the design. In total, eight crates will be installed to read out th e 81 920 strips from the three-layer double-sided silicon-strip detector ar ray. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
