PETsys SiPM Readout System

PETsys Silicon Photomultiplier Readout System

The PETsys SiPM Readout System is designed to read a large number of SiPMs photo-sensor pixels in applications where a high data rate and excellent time resolution is required. It is composed of Front-End modules,   the FEB/D board with a FPGA transferring data to DAQ system, and DAQ board. Together  these allow assembling a complete and scalable data acquisition system reading tens of thousands of SiPM photo-sensors.
