The CALICE Collaboration

We present the concept of a Digital Hadron Calorimeter (DHCAL) for use
in a detector optimized for the application of Particle Flow Algorithms
to the measurement of jet energies. Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs)
with 1 x 1 cm^2 readout pads are used as active elements. The
front-end electronic readout is integrated on the pad-boards of the
chambers. We report on detailed measurements with a small scale
prototype in the Fermilab test beam using muons, electrons, pions, and
protons and in the laboratory using cosmic rays.
