We present a new highly integrated 16-channels pulse shape amplifier, suitable for processing signals from a variety of radiation detectors: its processing capabilities range from the relatively slow signals of charge sensitive preamplifier, up to the very fast signals typical of scintillation detectors coupled to photo-multiplier tubes (PMT).

Abstract

We present a new highly integrated 16-channels pulse shape amplifier, suitable for processing signals from a variety of radiation detectors: its processing capabilities range from the relatively slow signals of charge sensitive preamplifier, up to the very fast signals typical of scintillation detectors coupled to photo-multiplier tubes (PMT). The amplifier provides the pulse shape analysis using the double constant fraction discriminator technique 131 and for each channel is also present a stretcher circuit and a time to amplitude converter (TAC) section, which allow sequential readout of time and energy parameters.
