Abstract: Background

Silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) also named multi-pixel photon counter (MPPC) has excellent performance, but it is difficult to carry out large scale testing due to the limitations of the power supply board.


This study aims to test the performance of the self-developed voltage-adjustable, batch-programmable SiPM low-voltage power supply module.


The performance of the new type of SiPM power driver board developed by our laboratory was tested and analyzed by the method of comparative test with commercial power supply. [Results &


The performances of proposed power module are comparable to that of the commercial module, and satisfy the reqiurments of SiPM batch test.

Key words: SiPM, Temperature effect, Multiphoton spectrum measurement
