Zusammenfassung
The Smart Pixel Camera is a new camera for imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes, suited for a next generation of large multi-telescope ground based gamma-ray observatories. The design of the camera foresees all electronics needed to process the images to be located inside the camera body at the focal plane. The camera has a modular design and is scalable in the number of pixels. The camera electronics provides the performance needed for the next generation instruments, like short signal integration time, topological trigger and short trigger gate, and at the same time the design is optimized to minimize the cost per channel. In addition new features are implemented, like the measurement of the arrival time of light pulses in the pixels on the few hundred psec timescale. The buffered readout system of the camera allows to take images at sustained rates of O(10kHz) with a dead-time of only about 0.8% per kHz.
