HSI Members - Erik van der Bij
Development of Electronic Modules
Since September 2002 Erik van der Bij is Group Leader of the
group that provides CERN-wide support for layout, production and assembly of
printed circuit boards, flexible circuits, ceramic hybrids and fine pitch
Between 1995 and 2002, Erik worked on the S-LINK project. He helped draft the S-LINK specification
and is author of the implementation guide. He co-ordinated the sub-projects,
of which most are done outside CERN. He kept close contact with the final
users to establish a list of suggestions for possible improvements to the
S-LINK specification. Furthermore he has designed PMC and PCI S-LINK
and Destination interfaces
and guided S-LINK designs done at CERN, such as the ODIN,
HOLA and S32PCI64.
He also reviewed designs using S-LINK that are made outside CERN.
ATLAS Front-end links
To help the ATLAS
Front-end link community in building gigabit links, Erik has also made
an overview of
serialiser components and he has also built S-LINK
boards that use the Hewlett Packard G-LINK components. Those boards
are compatible to radtolerant ASIC serialiser designs done at CERN and
by Princeton University.
CERN Digital CAE Users Group chairman
Between 1998 and 2003 Erik was chairman of the CERN
Digital CAE Users Group, a committee that oversees and guides the computing
support for digital-electronics engineering.
Between November 1993 and December 1998, Erik has been the representative
of CERN for the Fibre Channel Association.
Furthermore he has organised a Fibre Channel network at the International
Conference and Exhibition on High Performance Computing and Networking
(HPCN) which was held in Milan, Italy in May 1995.
Between 1992 and 1999 Erik has been the Fibre Channel coordinator for
High Speed Interconnect project.
He provided help to Fibre Channel projects at CERN and to other High Energy
Physics Institutes. This included providing information
via the World Wide Web on Fibre Channel products, specifications and
projects at CERN. This web server was used by many people from outside
High Energy Physics as well. As the LHC experiments have lost interest
in the use of Fibre Channel in the data acquisition system and event builders,
Erik has stopped this role since 1 January 1999.
Erik has designed a 100 MB/s HIPPI interface for VME and for transputers
in 1990 and 1991. The design was bought by Hewlett Packard for use in the
HP9000/700 series workstations HP HIPPI Link Series J2069A product (page
1, page 2, performance).
