Abstract

TOTEM is an LHC experiment around the same interaction point as CMS. It contains cathode strip chambers (CSC) and gas electron multiplier detectors (GEM) in the CMS cavern and 24 Roman Pots with silicon strip detectors in the LHC tunnel. TOTEM should run both standalone and together with CMS, and should be fully compatible with CMS. All three sub-detectors provide level one trigger building signals and use the same chips: VFAT2 providing both tracking data and fast trigger generation signals, the programmable Coincidence Chip, and the LVDS repeater chip. The same counting room hardware receives and handles both trigger building and tracking data.
