Abstract
HAWC (High Altitude Water Cherenkov) is a high energy Gamma ray detector-telescope under construction at an altitude of 4100 m in the Sierra Negra volcano, Mexico. HAWC is a international Mexico/USA collaboration and it will consist of a array of 300 tanks filled water and three photomultipliers tubes near the bottom of each tank. This work discuss some analog electronics solutions and the use of high speed differential amplifiers for tracking the high frequency pulses from the photomultiplier tubes. It also looks towards the update of the present analog front end board electronics of the water detector tanks.
