A monolithic HR-CMOS sensor chip for the CLIC silicon tracker

The CLIC Tracker Detector (CLICTD) is a monolithic pixelated sensor chip produced in a 180 nm imaging CMOS process built on a high-resistivity epitaxial layer. The chip, designed in the context of the CLIC tracking detector study, comprises a matrix of 16×128 elongated pixels, each measuring 300×30 μm2. To ensure prompt charge collection, every elongated pixel is segmented in eight sub-pixels, each containing a collection diode and a separate analog front-end. A simultaneous 8-bit time measurement with 10 ns time bins and 5-bit energy measurement with programmable range is performed in the on-pixel digital logic.
