DPP-PHA Control Software

Software interface for DPP-PHA management
This SW is going to be phased out, already replaced by the new MC2Analyzer software tool.
This SW doesn't support DPP-PHA firmware for the 730 digitizer family and 781 MCA family.


DPP-PHA Control Software(Ļ) is a demo application introducing the user to understand the principle of operation of the Digital Pulse Processing for the Pulse Height Analysis (DPP-PHA). It can manage single-board communication and acquisition of CAEN 724 Digitizer running DPP-PHA firmware and 780 MCA series.

DPP-PHA Control Software is based on a Java Graphical User Interface for the parameters setting (connection, DPP algorithm, acquisition, etc.), a C console application working as an acquisition engine (DPPRunner) and a third-party graphing utility (Gnuplot: www.gnuplot.info). The GUI directly handles the acquisition engine through run time commands and generates also a textual configuration file that contains all the selected parameters values. This file is read by DPPRunner, which programs the Digitizer according to the parameters, starts the acquisition and manages the data readout.

The software can operate in the Oscilloscope mode, where digitized input waveforms and digital signals from the internal filters are monitored in order to better tune the DPP parameters, and in the Histogram mode, where energy (i.e. height) and time histograms (built by the software) can be monitored.

According to the operating mode, raw data like waveforms or energy and time stamp lists, as well as energy or time histograms can be saved to output files for off-line analysis.

Neutron depth profiling (NDP) is a mature, non destructive technique used to characterize the concentration of certain light isotopes in a material as a function of depth by measuring the residual energy of charged particles in neutron induced reactions.In this work, we describe a new NDP instrument design with higher detection efficiency by way of spectrum summing across multiple detectors. The instrument uses a V1724 digitizer running DPP-PHA firmware.
