Introduction

The MCA512 is a compact multi channel analyzer (MCA) for processing gaussian inputs

It is capable of sorting input pulses from shaping amplifiers into 512 discrete bins.

Each Bin can record up to 65535 counts before an overflow event occurs.

The unit is powered via USB , and the data can be visualized via the included Python based software.
The software also includes analytical tools to fit the data and extract parameters

*This Product is a modified version of the alpha spectrometer MCA designed by IUAC, New Delhi and released as open hardware. Build details are here
