A prototype of a new correlator FARCOS (Femtoscope ARray for COrrelations and Spectroscopy) has been recently developed in the frame of INFN - NewCHIM collaboration [1]. FARCOS is an array of triple telescopes (DSSSD[300µm]-DSSSD[1500µm]-CsI(Tl)[6 cm]) with high pixelation and energy resolution, designed to study multi-particle correlations and spectroscopy of un-bound states in Heavy-ion collisions at Fermi energies (E=10-100 AMeV). The new correlator is characterized by high flexibility and modularity in order to be used in different configurations at various facilities with both stable and exotic beams (LNS, LNL-SPES) and to be coupled to other devices. The FARCOS project will be presented, together with preliminary results of tests and experiments in which the detector prototypes and different front-end solutions, like the GET electronics [2], have been used.
