Abstract

The Solenoid Detector Collaboration (SDC) has proposed to construct and operate a large, general-purpose, solenoidal detector that combines excellent charged particle detection, a hermetic, scintillator-based calorimeter and a large muon identification system.1 A principle component of the SDC detector is the outer tracker that provides precise momentum measurement of charged particles from a radius of 85 cm to 165 cm from the proton beam. The outer tracker front-end electronics capture and digitize the data it produces and a data collection circuit (DCC) collects this data and passes it to the SDC data acquisition (DAQ) system. We describe in this article the specifications and design of the outer tracker DCC.
