CMS Level-1 Trigger for an Upgraded LHC
Gehalten von Dinyar Rabady am 11.09.2011 bei CMS Week, Brussels
The present trigger electronics will reach its performance limits when LHC exceeds its nominal luminosity of 10**34cm*-'2s**-1. To keep triggering efficiently at higher luminosities will require higher
granularity, more sophisticated trigger algorithms, and eventually the inclusion of additional detector systems into the Level-1 Trigger. This has to be prepared in a step-by-step approach, and already now work is under way to gradually switch to faster connections (replacing galvanic links by optical links where expedient) and pave the way for more powerful algorithms by using more advanced FPGAs. This will be facilitated by using commercial systems where possible, further developing and adapting them in close cooperation with industry and interfacing them in a modular way based on the modern microTCA standard.
