The 13500 channels of the NA48 liquid-krypton electromagnetic calorimeter readout electronics were put into operation in 1997. The digitizer electronics employs a new gain switching technique that expands the dynamic range of a standard 10-bit ADC to 14 bits at 40 MHz sampling rate employing a custom-developed integrated circuit (KRYPTON). The KRYPTON has been fabricated in 1.2 mu m BiCMOS technology and was successfully developed together with industry on a short timescale. The performance and the experience from the first year of the operation of the liquid-krypton calorimeter electronics will also be briefly discussed. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
