Digital Pulse Processors

  • DP5 OEM Digital Pulse Processor & MCA

    Our DP5 is a high performance digital pulse processor (DPP) optimized for OEMs and lab users. It digitizes the preamplifier output signals, replacing both the shaping amplifier and Multichannel Analyzer (MCA) in a traditional, analog spectroscopy system. The DP5 offers several clear advantages over traditional systems, including improved performance (very high resolution, reduced ballistic deficit, higher throughput, and enhanced stability), enhanced flexibility, low power consumption, small size, and low cost.

  • DP5G Kit – OEM Digital Pulse Processor for Scintillators and PMTs

    The Amptek DP5G Kit is a state-of-the-art, high performance, low power digital pulse processor designed for use in scintillation spectroscopy systems. Connected to the anode of a PMT, it includes a charge sensitive preamplifier and a digital pulse processor, which replaces both the shaping amplifier and the MCA in a traditional nuclear spectroscopy system. The kit includes all the power supplies necessary to power those circuits and uses standard connectors for easy of use (USB, Ethernet, etc.). The DP5G offers several advantages over traditional systems, including higher performance, enhanced flexibility, small size, and low cost.

  • PX5 DPP, MCA and Power Supply

    The Amptek PX5 interfaces between (1) an X-ray and gamma-ray detector with its preamplifier and (2) a computer running data acquisition and control software. Designed principally to support Amptek’s XR-100 series of SDD, Si-PIN, and CdTe detectors, it can be used with many other radiation detectors and preamplifiers, including HPGe detectors and scintillators. It is compatible with both reset and feedback preamplifiers of either polarity. The PX5 includes (1) a high performance digital pulse processor (replacing a conventional shaping amplifier), (2) a multichannel analyzer, and (3) both low and high voltage power supplies (±HV).

  • PX5-HPGe DPP, MCA and Power Supply for HPGe Detectors & Preamps

    The PX5-HPGe is a modified version of Amptek’s MCA and Power Supply PX5 signal processor and power supply. A custom power supply board is installed in a standard PX5, providing the higher bias voltages needed by an HPGe detector along with the higher preamp power voltages and currents required by most HPGe preamplifiers. A custom front panel is installed, which mates with industry-standard connectors on HPGe detector/ preamp modules. The signal processing circuitry is unchanged from a standard PX5.
