Presented are the main design features of the large Cathode Strip Chambers (CSCs) for the CMS Endcap Muon System as well as the performance results obtained with the two full-scale 3.4×1.5 m2 six-plane prototypes. The prototype performance was within the baseline requirements: (a) higher than 99% efficiency of muon track finding at the trigger level with more than 92% probability for bunch crossing identification and better than 2 mm spatial resolution, and (b) better than 150 μm spatial resolution in off-line.
