Development of the AMEGO Prototype Si Tracker Front End (AMEGO)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Development of the front end electronics (FEE) for a prototype Si Tracker for AMEGO (All-sky Medium-Energy Gamma-ray Observatory; https://asd.gsfc.nasa.gov/amego/). AMEGO is a probe class mission concept in the MeV band and detects MeV gamma rays by Compton scattering and pair production via a Si Tracker, CsI and CZT calorimeters, and a plastic anti-coincidence shield (ACD). There are several technical development projects underway supported by APRA grants and the FEE for the tracker is a vital component.
