Silicon PhotoMultiplier Evaluation Kit
CAEN realizes two modular kits dedicated to Silicon Photomultipliers, representing the state-of-the-art in low light field detection with photon number resolving capabilities.
The SiPM Evaluation Kit is intended for users who want to test sensors and characterize them in preparation of their final detector configuration. The SiPM Evaluation Kit is designed for this purpose. It is an all-in-one solution to help experimenters reduce the time and effort required to evaluated assorted sensors using vendor specific test systems. A single solution gives the user a quality cross reference comparison between individual vendors sensors.
Included in this kit you will find:
  • A two channel USB2 Desktop Digitizer with Charge Integration firmware which executes real-time processing of the raw data at both high and low data rates.
  • A USB2 programmable power supply and conditioning unit which includes a bias power supply for the sensor, wide band amplifier with programmable gain from 1 - 50db and fast leading edge discriminator and time coincidence logic.
  • Three hardware SiPM adapters (SiPM holder) which support most common form factors align the SiPM with the input conditioner and provides high voltage bias for the detector. One adapter supports the 1 X 1 mm Hamamatsu Model MPPC S 10362-11-25C, another supports the 1 x 1 mm Hamamatsu Model MPPC S 10362 - 11 - 100C and the third adapter supports a generic holder for sensors of a different form factor. These two particular Hamamatsu sensors were chosen to compare the extreme sides of the SiPM behavior. The Model 25C with its 1600 pixels has a wide dynamic range but less Photon Detection Efficiency compared to the Model 100C. The Model 25C is the preferred choice for applications with large numbers of photons. The Model 100C with its 100 pixels has a narrow dynamic range and greater sensitivity compared to the Model 25C. The Model 100C is particularly geared for applications with very low light intensity.
  • A programmable LED Driver includes a violet LED source close to the maximum peak efficiency of the sensors.
  • All necessary cables and connectors are included.
  • LabView based control software (Windows only).
  • "Quick Start" guide documentation.

USB2 programmable 2 Channels Power Supply and Amplification Unit provided in the SiPM kits. SP5600 supplies the bias for the sensor, features a wide band amplifier with programmable gain from 1 - 50db and fast leading edge discriminator and time coincidence logic. DS2626 - SP5600 Power Supply and Amplification Unit 02 February, 2012
The SP5650 is the family of sensor holders provided in the SiPM kits. The holders host a 1x1 mm2 Silicon PhotoMultipliers; moreover, a probe inside the holders senses temperature variations, thus allowing the user to compensate for possible gain instability. The holders are designed to fit a large number of SiPM pin-outs and packages. DS2628 - SP5650 Sensor Holder for SP5600 SiPM Kit 25 November, 2011
SP5601 is a fast LED driver and represents the ideal tool for SiPM tests and characterization, through a triggered light burst of intensity down to a few photons and up to a number saturating the sensors. The SP5601 features tuneable intensity and repetition rate: the LED driver can be triggered either via the internal pulse generator, or via an external source; the optical signal is routed to the sensor through a fibre, FC interfaced.
