Highlights of the ASDQ board development at Penn
Our CDF group at Penn had an ASDQ chip labeling party on June 24, 1999. Everybody participated. We labeled close to 10,000 chips in one afternoon. The "Heros of the Day" were Eiko, Wasiq and Mitch. Eiko set up the chip testing station with Wasiq and was th e chip-testers trainer and supervisor. Mitch, of course, was the designer and inspiration of the ASIC ASDQ chip. And Wasiq laid o ut the ASIC ASDQ chip and oversaw the physics requirements for use of this chip in the CDF environment.
Here is a link to view a damaged shipment of '31' ASDQ boards shipped Sept. 3rd and received at Penn Sept. 8th. The box was smashed and torn open and was retaped with clear tape. There were 4 ASDQ boards missing and at least 4 that looked physically damaged to the eye. The rest are undergoing electrical tests.
