Many of today’s digital pulse processors suffer debilitating pulse pile-up even at low count rates. The FalconX instruments use powerful SITORO® algorithms to accurately process almost all detected radiation events even at high count rates, recovering data discarded by other pulse processors and delivering superior spectral quality. As a result, unprecedented throughput at high count rates can be achieved. For example, only 12% dead-time at 1 Mcps output, and a maximum output count rate of about 4 Mcps.
The FalconX8 delivers analysis dramatically faster than conventional pulse processors, with minimal resolution degradation from low to high count rates. The FalconX8 eliminates the need to adjust shaping times across count rates, and offers flexibility to optimize analysis for highest resolution, highest throughput or a combination of both, and excellent pulse pair resolution of less than 30 nanoseconds.
The FalconX8 is available with 1 through 8 channels activated. For larger systems, multiple units can be easily combined on a fast network, with the option of clean rack mounting.
XIA designed the FalconX8 with simplicity and flexibility in mind. It is compact, highly portable, compatible out of the box with virtually all detectors, and requires minimal setup.
