HEP Electronics Lab

Under Construction

The HEP Electronics Lab is located between HEP Grad Student offices on the 5th floor in room 5308 . Two electronics work stations are set up with antistatic mats and modern soldering stations. The lab hosts a number of modern Tektronix oscilloscopes and an extensive line of  test instruments.  A stock of Neuclear Instrumentation Modules (NIM) is maintained along with a limited supply of CAMAC and VME crates and electronics.

Broida Basement Storage:

    Small electronics equipment which is of no immediate use is stored in a number of wood crates in the basement of Broida Hall. A key to the screen cage area is located in Debby's desk or Sam's desk. A listing of the equipment is maintained at http://charm.physics.ucsb.edu/equipment/equipmentindex.html  . The listing for  Babar production related items are located in the . . ucsb.edu/equipment/ directory as a doc file.  Babar items are housed in four wood crates.
