  • The USBPix is the single module system designed by Bonn as an alternative test system for FE-I3/FE-I4. More than 20 laboratories invested on this system and an effort is going on to upgrade hardware and software to the new FE-I4. This will be the IBL single module test bench system.
  • The upgrade of a FE-I3 USBPix system to FE-I4 requires a new adapter board which connects the so-called Multi-IO board to the FE-I4 board.
  • A complete new USBPix system for FE-I4 consists of a Mulit-IO board plus the FE-I4 adapter board.

  • There is a TWiki page on USBpix here


  • On 3rd-4th April 2011 at DESY, there was a 2 day tutorial for the USBpix. Slides and evo recordings of the sessions can be found here


Updating USBPIX software

1) download and install

2) Make the following paths

  • ROOTSYS: Base directory of the root installation (e.g. "c:\root").
  • QTDIR: C:\Qt\4.6.3
  • QWTDIR: C:\qwt-5.2.1
  • VCDIR (Windows / VC++): C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC
  • VS90COMNTOOLS: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools

3) create a folder on c: 4) right click and select tortoise svn -> create repository here

5) right click and select tortoise svn -> create check out

6) paste in web link to folder on svn you want to use (either 'trunk' or 'release ??')

7) follow the commands on http://icwiki.physik.uni-bonn.de/twiki/bin/view/Systems/UsbPix using command prompt found in QT

FEI-4 Documentation

  • Documentation for FEI-can be found at
https://espace.cern.ch/atlas-pixel-upgrade-elec/Final%20Design/Reference/ (NB: Requires cern id and password)

  • A presentation on FE-I4 given at the USBpix tutorial at DESY in April can be found here

  • Testing Meetings
There are weekly meetings for FEi4 testing. They are on Mondays, and are at 5.30PM CERN time
