ASD8 is the analog front end chosen to read out the photodetectors of the HERA-B RICH. A test of 1791 boards was performed to study which were the best operating conditions, to make a quality assessment and to optimize the distribution of the boards on the RICH focal plane. Nevertheless, some drawbacks are apparent when a board designed for tracker detectors is employed to convert a photomultiplier signal.
