Title: UDCM Operating Procedure (Limited Functionality prototype)

Abstract

The UDCM is a two channel low current measurement device designed to record sub-nano-amp to micro-amp currents from radiation detectors. The UDCM incorporates a Commercial-Off-The- Shelf (COTS) processor enabling both serial over USB as well as Ethernet communications. The instrument includes microSD and USB flash memory for data storage as well as a programmable High Voltage (HV) power supply for detector bias. The UDCM incorporates a unique TTL output feature first used in the LANL Current to Pulse Converter (CPC). Two SMA connectors on the UDCM provide TTL pulses at a frequency proportional to the input currents.
