The WRM (Weighting Resistive Matrix) is a conceptually simple device born for triggering tracks from beam-beam interaction experiments. Because of its passive nature, it is possible to perform track recognition with a time transition in about 10 ns from digital inputs. The study and development of this device has brought to a theorization of a WRM able to elaborate analog inputs with the highest measuring performance, not necessarily restricted to beam-beam experiments. More general studies are involving connectivity topology logic in the device, that could be the key to understand more general applications of it.
