Abstract

This work deals with the design of a new readout electronics for silicon photomultipliers sensors. The so-called SiPMs sensors are an emerging technology currently diffusing in many applications and, among them, in the definition of a new generation of LIDAR systems. The latter, nowadays have a primary role in the evolution process that is involving Smart Cities, being an enabling technology in different fields. The solution here proposed is realized at electronic level with a 150 nm technology process from LFoundry and results provide a feasible demonstration of the capability of the proposed design approach to be employed in practical application.
