ATM Ethernet Daughterboard

The Super-Kamiokande experiment is a large underground neutrino detector in Japan. 15,000 photomultiplier tubes are mounted in a large tank of water in an underground mine. The tubes measure tiny flashes of Cherenkov light given off by the passage of sub-atomic particles including muons and neutrinos.

The EDF built about 500 Ethernet readout cards which are used to transmit data from the detector to a bank of computers which identify interesting events for further analysis.
