Silab, Silicon Labs
Sillicon Lab or Silab is a laboratory dedicated to resolving arising needs from the Experimental High Energy Physics research team. Focused on Electronics and Mechanics, it develops solutions in multiple disciplines.
Silab counts with the knowledge, equipment and experience fundamental to develop equipment and parts of the quality required by Experimental High Energy Physics. Through design, manufacturing and subsequent validation of prototypes, this laboratory counts with sufficient versatility and autonomy to confront National and International projects with results of unique quality For that purpose the laboratory has three areas of develpment:
Center of Mechanized work
Area focused on the design, prototyping and manufacturing of electronic and mechanical parts, which are developed for CCTVal´s own projects as well as to collaborate in international experiments developed in Laboratories like Jefferson Lab, CERN, among others. To fulfill said objectives, Silab counts with the following equipment:
Particles and Spectrometry Detection
This area is focused in the detection of particles by means of the construction of parts with transducer materials, the digitalization of signals coming from the same, and the following spectrometric analysis of the signals detected.
The experience on these subjects allows Silab to participate in multiple collaborative projects with Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, Brookhaven National Laboratory, both in United States, and with the European Center of Nuclear Research, CERN in Switzerland.
At a national stage, there are diverse projects in development contemplating the application of nuclear technology in the industry, in particular for copper mining.
This area counts with the following equipment:
Silab´s most recent laboratory, aimed to the implementation of personalized packaging for specialized semiconductors and to the delivery of electronical solutions of higher density. Within the available equipment stands out:
