Silicon detecting devices, like telescopes made of several sensitive layers, or multistrip position identifiers are becoming more and more widely used in high energy experiments. The extension of solid state detectors to high energy physics is requiring a critical revision of the criteria that underlie the design of signal processors. Along with the ideas made available by low energy nuclear spectroscopy, new ones are being implemented to cope with the constraints that limit the performances of silicon detectors utilized in the beam of a large accelerator.
