The CALICE Collaboration

Imaging calorimetry depends heavily on the development of high
performance, highly integrated readout ASICs embedded inside the
detector which readout the millions of foreseen channels.
To demonstrate their feasibility, the CALICE collaboration and the EUDET
framework have developed ECAL and HCAL technological detector
prototypes, which will be equiped with HaRDROC (Hadronic Rpc Detector
Read-Out Chip), SKIROC (Silicon Kalorimeter Integrated Read Out Chip)
and SPIROC (Silicon Photomultiplier Integrated Read Out Chip).
These ASICs integrate 36 to 64 channels of low noise amplification,
shaping, auto-trigger, zero-suppress, 12 bit digitization and local
storage as well as full power pulsing. They have been fabricated in
2006-2007 and show good preliminary performance. Design issues and
measurement results will be presented.
