Title: Design and implementation of digital electronics for fast readout and processing of channel nuclear experimental data

Abstract

The detection of individual photons, charged particles, neutrons, and atoms and molecules is the basis of a wide range of commercial and scientific applications, including medical imaging and diagnostics, mass spectroscopy and scientific disciplines such as nuclear, high-energy, and astrophysics. In many of these applications, the time as well as the position of the arrival of a particle is measured. Physicist and scientists routinely have applications that require timing in the picosecond range that are in need of cost effective, low power circuits and systems that process the signal in the digital domain with fast response and high throughput data handling capabilities. With the advent of new experiments in the US, there is a need for a US-based commercial supplier of digital electronic systems and circuits that perform fast readout and signal processing and feature extraction on waveform data in experimental physics. Recent advances in fast digital processing hardware and software makes it possible to implement such readout and processing systems in a more scalable and integrable fashion. The intent of this project was a commercially available readout controller with digital signal processing and feature extraction capabilities that could be deployed as turnkey solutions when connected to waveform sampling devices.
