Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM or MPPC) offer an alternative low light sensor to Multi-Anode Photomultiplier Tubes with the benefits of low operating voltage, compact packaging and reduced susceptibility to damage. The Silicon photomultiplier Elementary Cell Add-on camera (SiECA)comprises front end opto-electric sensors, SiPM specific ASIC signal processing chipset, data handling FPGA, support electronics and firmware integrated in a robust unit for integration on existing detector systems. This paper presents the technical aspects of using SiPM or MPPC for astroparticle physics, particularly with respect to this implementation. A first flight of this camera was made with the EUSO-SPB mission starting April 2017.
