About ELEC

Following the need for a representative CERN-wide committee to oversee and guide computing support for electronic engineering, ELEC (ELectronics Engineering Committee) has been established. This committee discusses and agrees on common policies to be followed, along with work plans and budget requests. ELEC reports to the Technical Director who appoints its chairperson and approves its membership. For computing support for mechanical engineering, such a committee, called CAEC has been operating successfully since 1988.

The idea of creating ELEC was discussed during the summer of 1997 with the leaders of all concerned divisions (departments) and received their full support.

The principal tasks of ELEC are:

  • to approve technical choices of both hardware and software;
  • to plan, request and distribute the ELEC budget;
  • to advise the concerned support groups on their policy.

ELEC should aim to cover all computing tools for electronic engineering used at CERN.

ELEC Members

The Technical Director appoints the chairperson. Each interested department nominates at most two members for ELEC. These members represent the departmental hierarchy in the area of EDA. The Technical Director approves the nominations in consultation with the ELEC chair. The Electronics User Group chair is an ex-officio member as are IT members responsible for the installation and support of the tools.
The current membership is as follows:

ELEC Chair: S. Haas / PH

Departmental representatives: E. van der Bij / BE, R. Denz / TE, P. Farthouat / PH, M. Hansen / PH, W. Hofle / BE, D. Nisbet / BE, J. Serrano / BE

User-Group chair:
Electronics User Group -
A. Kluge / PH

EDA-tool support:
P. Baehler / IT,
J. Evans / IT (ELEC secretary)
