FASEA: A FPGA Acquisition System and Software Event Analysis for liquid scintillation counting

Steele, T.; Mo, L; Bignell, Lindsay Jordan; Smith, Michael; Alexiev, Dimitri


The FASEA (FPGA based Acquisition and Software Event Analysis) system has been developed to replace the MAC3 for coincidence pulse processing. The system uses a National Instruments Virtex 5 FPGA card (PXI-7842R) for data acquisition and a purpose developed data analysis software for data analysis. Initial comparisons to the MAC3 unit are included based on measurements of89Sr and3H, confirming that the system is able to accurately emulate the behaviour of the MAC3 unit. Crown
