Electronics Developments for Phase-2 Upgrade of CMS Drift Tubes

July 25, 2019
The Electronics for the Drift Tube Chambers (DT) of CMS will be significantly upgraded during
the LHC Long Shutdown 3 (LS3). DTs are responsible for the tracking and triggering of muons
in the central region of CMS. As a consequence of the higher L1A rate set by HL-LHC, the new
CMS Trigger requirements will exceed the present capabilities of the DT on-detector electronics
(so called MiniCrate, MiC). For this reason, having also in mind easier electronics maintainability
and chamber aging mitigation arguments, DTs will replace all their MiCs during LS3. The phase2 on detector electronics for DT will consist of a single type of board called OBDT (On Board
electronics for Drift Tubes). A full description of the OBDT will be given along with the status
of the prototype production and validation tests on the firmware.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
