A dead time correction module in EUROcard format was designed and assembled. Its circuitry is a further development of the Barnhart approach. The fast discriminator signal from a spectroscopy amplifier is combined with the preamplifier inhibit signal, and with the messages from the analog-to-digital converter. The unit processes this input and produces a coincidence signal for the multichannel analyzer gate. A complete pile-up rejection system is incorporated in the module. 6 figs.
