The first results of charge collection in ALTIROC2 prototypes for HGTD have been carried out at IFAE.
The sensors were fabricated at HPK, the ASIC digital design led by R. Casanova. The devices were fully assembled at IFAE including bump-bonding. The firmware and software were also developed by IFAE (C. Puigdengoles, S. Terzo and L. Castillo).
The results will be presented next week in the HGTD week.
