Highly segmented digital tracking calorimeters consist of multiple layers of high-granularity pixel detector CMOS sensors and absorption/conversion layers. Two separate prototypes are being developed: (1) an electromagnetic calorimeter for a proposed ALICE upgrade (during Long Shutdown 3) and (2) a hadronic calorimeter for medical proton computed tomography imaging. These prototypes employ the ALPIDE detector chip developed for the ALICE Inner Tracking System. The ALPIDE chips are mounted on intermediate aluminum/polyimide flexible circuits with ultrasonic welding. This contribution presents findings and solutions to the challenging design of high-speed readout electronics with efficient use of FPGA resources for these prototypes.

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.
