- The design of the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) pair-conversion tracker is based upon single-sided silicon-strip detectors with 36 cm long strips. The electronics used to read out this system are based upon CMOS ASICs and are similar in many ways to electronics used in high energy physics experiments. However, stringent requirements on power consumption and reliability, which are required for operations in space, have lead to a unique custom design. In this paper we describe the design and construction of a fully functional prototype readout system and its performance in a beam test.
