A first batch of ITK Pixel prototype modules has recently left IFAE to SLAC (United States) for ITk loading testing.
This first batch contains four RD53A triplet modules fully assembled and characterized at IFAE by the ATLAS pixels group. Juan I. Carloto, Eric Peregrina, Jaume Tóvar and Pablo Fernández have contributed to this production.
A second batch of three RD53A modules has been already assembled, and it is now under electrical testing at IFAE facilities, before being sent to SLAC by the beginning of June.
