Abstract

The design of a TPC for a high-multiplicity environment is described. The sense plane is composed of a matrix with 40 rows of short anode wires. The end-cap is completed with rod and wire electrodes to establish the amplification region and to minimize space charge effects. The digital readout of more than 6000 channels is performed by a combination of purpose-built comparators and FASTBUS TDCs. The performance of the chamber is briefly described, and some ideas to improve the hit efficiency and resolution in a new end-cap design are discussed.
