VERDI - Multi-channel Analog Readout for Radiation Detectors
VERDI is a multi-channel ASIC capable of reading out different type of radiation detectors (SDD, PMT, Si (Li) etc.) with both positive and negative signal polarities. The circuit includes 8 channels, each one composed by a Charge Sensitive Amplifier (CSA), a Shaping Amplifier, a Baseline Holder, a Peak Stretcher, and an output buffer.
- Availability: bare die, QFP120, QFN80
- Physical size: 3.5 mm x 3.5 mm x ?? mm (bare die), 28 mm x 28 mm x 4 mm (QFP120), 12 mm x 12 mm x 0.8mm (QFN80)
- Reset: pulsed or continuous (with external zero-network)
- Mode: Normal, Low-Power (multiplexed output) or shut down
- Power consumption: 170 mW in low-power mode and 3mW in shut down mode
- Front-end JFET readout for radiation detector application
- Multi-element X and Gamma-ray detectors readout
- Nitrogen-cooled Ge and Si(Li) detectors, Silicon drift detectors (SDDs), Scintillation Detectors, Photomultipliers Tubes, etc.
