The e-CRLab is mainly dedicated to the development of electronics for Cosmic Ray experiments. The focus is put on fast digital electronics implemented in FPGAs.
The laboratory has the capability to design complex printed circuit boards and to produce simple printed circuit board (PCB) prototypes. The production of complex PCB and its assembly is outsourced. There is capability to do rework in PCB boards. A small set of mechanical tools allows the production of simple detector prototypes mainly for proofs of concept. Currently, the e-CRLab is involved in the development of instrumentation for the MARTA project for the Pierre Auger Observatory and in the testing of radiation damage of components for ESA. In addition, the lab gives support to outreach and education purposes, particularly in the development of equipment for education purposes, such as the aMu muon telescope.
