Taking advantage of new low cost, high density ADC components, this new member of XIA’s Pixie spectrometer family is designed to address needs in the nuclear physics community for instrumenting large scale radiaton detectors at relatively low cost. The Pixie-32 is a true multi-channel spectrometer that not only digitally captures incoming waveforms but also provides good time and energy resolution at a per channel cost up to 0 times lower than other digital readout modules of similar capability.
The Pixie-32 is the first member of a family of digital spectrometers modules that will all share the same communication back-end whil etheir front-ends have a variety of digitization and signal processing options to meet the community's broad spectrum of readout electronics needs. This approach enhances the instrument's flexibility because the front-end is easily adaptable to different experiments or applications.
