RF Box Developments for Upgrade (WP10)

The construction of a new RF foil brings two major advantages to the upgrade program: the a possible reduction in the material contribution of the foil, and the possibility of more flexibility in the geometry and layout. For more details see, for example http://indico.cern.ch/contributionDisplay.py?contribId=1&confId=48611 . This work package consists of an assessment of the risks, issues, and speed of such a program as well as the R&D itself.

Figures for LOI

Here are some figures generated for the LOI, 2010-08-03. These figures are cut from a 3d model which uses the baseline module design, which follows from Tony's balanced 3x1 tiling scheme, and z-spacing used by Steve for his simulations.

Colors are: RF Foil (gold), sensor (green), ASIC (yellow), epoxy (olive), aluminum (medium blue), kapton+connectors (orange), cooling lines (light blue), transparent gray (substrate). "Services" here refer to cooling and kaptons.
