Abstract
The design, construction and performance of the H1 silicon vertex detector is described. It consists of two cylindrical layers of double-sided, double -metal silicon sensors read out by a custom designed analog pipeline chip. The analog signals are transmitted by optical fibres to a custom-designed A DC board and are reduced on PowerPC processors. Details of the design and c onstruction are given and performance figures from the first data-taking pe riods are presented. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
