Advanced Detector

RD50-MCz Version 3

April 27, 2009

The project is to fabricate a Printed Circuit Board for mounting a Silicon Strip detector and Hybrid electronics. The board is an octagon shape, single sided 0.0937" thick. There are alignment holes, mounting holes and vacuum holes.

Key features..

  1. The board has silk screening to aide aligning the sensor and hybrid for gluing.
  2. Solder mask under the devices provides an area where glue is applied.
  3. Holes under the sensor and hybrid are used with vacuum to hold the devices while glue is setting.
  4. Pads under the sensor make contact with the aluminum base using silver epoxy.
  5. A hole is provided, under the sensor, for attaching a temperature sensor.
  6. Thermal management is provided to remove approximately 1-Watt of heat from the detector. The circuit board material is selected for improved thermal conductivity and copper areas are used to conduct heat away from the sensor and into the brass mounting ring.
