Title: Development of Multi-window ASIC for High-Flux X-Ray Inspection Systems.

Abstract

The BNL Microelectronics group has designed a series of custom ASICs in CMOS technol­ogy for use with Cadmium-Zink-Telluride (CdZnTe) radiation detectors, primarily in the field of nuclear spectroscopy. An increased demand for CdZnTe based detection systems that can operate in high flux X-ray inspection equipment makes it necessary to develop a new type of signal processing ASIC, one which can achieve moderate energy resolution at very high count rate. This work covers the development of a high-rate, low power ASIC that classifies events into one of five energy windows at rates up to 2 MHz/channel.
