ProSpect- Windows Configuration and Data Acquisition Software

The ProSpect software supports microDXP/microDGF configuration, spectrum acquisition and analysis, and diagnostic procedures:


  • Detector/Preamplifier settings
  • Peaking time optimization (via parameter sets stored in non-volatile memory)
  • MCA format (number of bins, bin granularity...etc.)
  • Update firmware using the XUP utility
  • Settings import/export for multiple identical systems

Spectrum Acquisition

  • parameter-set-based acquisition
  • Preset fixed-length/count runs
  • Online and offline calibration
  • Variable bin depth for faster readout

Analysis and Statistics

  • Dynamic Regions of Interest (ROI)
  • Gaussian fits to multiple ROIs
  • Output statistics: ICR, OCR, realtime, deadtime
  • Panning and zooming to examine spectrum features
  • Linear and logarithmic displays
  • Export spectra for additional analysis


  • Digital oscilloscope
  • Baseline histogram and history views
  • DSP parameter editor


The ProSpect application supports microDXP configuration, diagnostic functions, and data acquisition and analysis.

DXP Driver Libraries: Handel

Handel is a high-level device driver that provides an interface to the DXP hardware in spectroscopic units (eV, microseconds, etc...) while still allowing for safe, direct-access to the DSP. Additionally, Handel only requires a single configuration file in order to start the system. The trade-off for this ease of use is an increase in size. At a minimum, Handel requires 5 libraries to operate with a single product. For more information, please consult the Handel API or contact us at .
