Abstract : SING is a wide field NUV spectrograph payload operating from 140 nm to 270 nm range with a spectral resolution of around 3 Angstroms. SING's primary science objective is to study the physical conditions in extended regions of the sky. These encompass many phases of the ISM, from the hot gas in supernova remnants (SNR) to the warm gas in planetary nebulae to cold gas in molecular clouds, including emission lines from hot gas (CIV 154.8/155 nm) and warm gas (NIII 175 nm). In this poster, we will discuss the development of electronics subsystems for the SING spectrograph payload. This includes FPGA-based photon-counting NUV detector electronics, command and data handling electronics, and 1553B telemetry interface electronics.
