Description: A modification to a constant fraction discriminator design published earlier makes the observed time walk less than 30 ps over an input voltage range of 0.15 to 2.5 V. This performance makes time-walk corrections unnecessary in many situations.

Adaptive Readout Technique For A Sixteen Channel Peak Sensing ADC In the FERA Format

Description: An adaptive, variable block-size readout technique for use with multiple, sixteen-channel CAMAC ADCs with a FERA-bus readout has been developed and designed. It can be used to read data from experiments with or without coincidence, i.e. singles, without having to change the readout protocol. Details of the implementation are discussed and initial results are presented. Further applications of the adaptive readout are also discussed.

A sixteen channel peak sensing ADC for singles spectra in the FERA format

Description: To read out multi-element small X-ray detectors for X-ray fluorescence application with synchrotron radiation one needs the capability to record multiple singles spectra for each detector element at high rates. We have developed a sixteen channel 11 bit peak sensing ADC in a CAMAC module. We use the FERA readout bus to place the data into a commercially available histogramming module developed to generate multiple histograms from FERA ADCs. The sixteen channels digitize shaped pulses from the detectors without external gating. The digitizing time is 8 {mu}sec, the peak acquisition time is {>=} 2 {mu}sec. The module contains a LiFO to permit block transfers in order to minimize dead times associated with the readout. There is a common CAMAC controlled analog threshold for noise suppression and a 16 bit mask to enable or disable individual ADCs. Differential non-linearity is less than +8% / -4%. A {gamma}-ray spectrum collected using this ADC is presented.
