The Digital Detector Emulator is an instruments for emulating in real time signals from generic setups for radiation detection.
The instrument is not a pulse generator of recorded shapes but a synthesizer of true casual pulses compliant to programmable statistics for amplitude, starting time and shape. The emulated signal reflects the characteristics of the programmed features (e.g. energy spectrum, time distribution, noise spectrum and intensity, shape distribution) and the stream of signals is a statistic sequence. In fact when the emulation process is reset, the kernels of generators are re-initialized with new random data (from a physical source) making the analog output sequences always different.
• Sub ns rise time: emulate even faster diamond detectors
• High rate emulation: statistic distribution (energy/time) up to 20 Mcps
• Multi-shape: up to 4 different shape on the same channel with statistical distribution
• Zero dead time: 1ns minimum distance between events
• Ultra low noise: less then 200 uVrms (low noise config.)
• Dual output analog path: ±9V high voltage for PMT emulation and ±2V high speed output for fast detector emulation
• Waveform generator: 25 MHz waveform generator and 32 Mword AWG
• Instrument synchronization: Share clock between multiple devices to synchronize generated pulses.
• New amazing control software: Control multiple emulators, real-time monitor of output and input channels.
• Coincidence: Two outputs could work in correlation mode generating signal in coincidence with 1ns step programmable delay.
• Display: Monitor the emulator status from the two high resolution OLED display
