For example in Mass Spectrometry stop event pulses generated by ions arriving at the detector (typically a MCP) need to be precisely counted in the exact relation to their arrival time (TOF). FAST ComTec has specialised in the design and manufacturing of instruments for ultra-fast pulse counting that meets this criterion.
The new USB 3.0 based models MCS8A and MCS8 with time resolutions from 80 ps up to 800 ps are able to record a permanent total 300 MHz count rate until the large 4GB FIFO is full, 240 MB/s is the data transfer rate, 12.5 GHz is the burst count rate.
The MCCD is a start trigger / master clock source with eight outputs that can be used to synchronize up to 8 MCS8As for recording up to 64 input channels, but is also a very good general purpose test generator for fast jitter-free signals.
The USB based models of the MCS6A family with time resolutions between 100 ps and 800 ps and up to five input channels are one of the fastest commercially available fully digital multistop time digitizers (TOF). These models have no dead-time after recording a stop pulse.
Furthermore they can also be used to analyze the width of the arriving pulses with an accuracy of 100 pico seconds. FAST ComTec Time-of-Flight Analyzers are available with a number of options ranging from software DLL's for LabVIEW, C and Visual Basic to oven controlled oscillators.
For measurements requiring very high time precision over a larger time range an optional Rubidium Frequency Standard is available.
Our 2-Year Warranty covers all types of FAST ComTec Multiscalers.
