VICO-DP

High-Performance Digital Pulse Processor DPP2.

KETEK VICO-DP

The VICO-DP is optimized for KETEKs CUBE based SDDs to take full advantage of the fast sensors. Extremely short peaking times down to 100 ns can be applied for high throughput at low deadtimes.

  • FWHM < 125 eV Mn-Ka @ 1 μs peaking time with VITUS CUBE SDD

  • FWHM < 140 eV Mn-Ka @ 0.1 μs peaking time with VITUS CUBE SDD

  • Peak-to-Background Ratio > 20,000 (Def.: Mn-Ka peak to average between 900 eV and 1100 eV)

  • High count rate capability of up to 1 Mcps in combination with excellent energy resolution

  • Extremely small dimensions: 46.55 x 31.3 x 11 mm3

  • High-speed USB 2.0 and RS-232 interfaces

  • Acquisition software for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 10 (32 and 64 bit)

  • DLL for Windows, LabView (32 and 64 bit); LINUX also supported
