Abstract [en]

At CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, a new particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), is under development and construction, which is a huge scientific and engineering project. It will be used to accomplish sophisticated high-energy experiments of proton beam collisions at energies of 14 TeV. ATLAS is one of the four main experiments at this accelerator, scheduled to start operation in 2005. The complex particle detectors, composed of independent units, will form the base of each main experiment. The importance of a powerful Detector Control System (DCS) has increased with the size, complexity and the need of safe operation of these particle detectors. The DCS will be the tool for supervision and operation of the ATLAS experiment. It will be composed of a commercial Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system and a purpose built frontend I/O system. The aim of this Master Thesis has been to study the performance of a front-end I/O system in a radiation environment, in particular the radiation tolerance of electronic components. The I/O system consisted of a programmable multiplexed ADC system (16 bit resolution, 23 bit dynamic range) called 'Local Monitor Box' (LMB), which is controlled and read out via the commercial field-bus Controller Area Network (CAN).
