The Model V792N is a 1-unit wide VME 6U module housing 16 Charge-to-Digital Conversion channels with current integrating negative inputs (50 Ohm impedance).
For each channel, the input charge is converted to a voltage level by a QAC (Charge to Amplitude Conversion) section. Input range is 0 ÷ 400 pC.
The Model V792N features LEMO 00 connectors for both input and control signals. The outputs of the QAC sections are multiplexed and subsequently converted by two fast 12-bit ADCs. The integral non linearity is ±0.1% of Full Scale Range (FSR) measured from 5% to 95% of FSR. The ADCs use a sliding scale technique to improve the differential non-linearity.
The Mod. V792N offers a 32 event buffer memory, A24/A32 addressing mode, D16, D32, BLT32/MBLT64 and CBLT32/CBLT64 data transfer mode. Multicast commands are also supported.
The board supports the live insertion that allows inserting or removing them into the crate without switching it off.
