The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is an international long-baseline neutrino experiment that will build an intense neutrino beam from Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois to a far detector, consisting of four Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPC) holding in total around 80 ktons, at the Sanford Underground Research Laboratory in South Dakota at 1300 kilometers downstream of the source. The availability of two variants of the LArTPC technology, Single- and Dual-Phase, for the DUNE far detector has led to an extensive “protoDUNE” program development at the European Research Center (CERN) Neutrino Platform facility. The Single Phase (SP) TPC readout electronics are referred to as the “Cold Electronics (CE)” because they will operate in LAr, to minimize channel capacitance and noise by keeping the length of the connection between the anode wires and its corresponding electronics input to an absolute minimum. I will summarize the CE system and present preliminary results from the CE testing at warm and cold conditions after their installation on the protoDUNE-SP detector.
