LisTDC Data Acquisition Unit

LisTDC unit

The LisTDC Data Acquisition Unit is designed to be used in any neutron scattering measurement, using two dimensional position sensitive wire detectors with delay line outputs. The mode of operation is event recording. The unit accepts also digital signals from choppers, monitor counts and other signal sources, and can generate both 2D histograms and event record list data, with high resolution timestamps.

The LisTDC Data Acquisition Unit comes with preinstalled internal firmware, allowing it to communicate with a dedicated data processing unit SpecPRO through a dedicated Gigabit Ethernet line.

The registered events and / or spectra can be read out from the SpecPRO unit by TCP/IP communication.


- Data Acquisition software: performing the necessary data processing according to the attached configuration files. It runs under Microsoft Windows 7. The software works as a TCP/IP server program which accepts and responds to requests from an instrument computer.

- Data Acquisition Suite: An easy-to-use graphical application written in NI LabView, containing simple programs for demonstrating / testing data acquisition. Source code is also available.

- Detailed documentation of the communication protocol, description of commands
