9310-16 Sixteen Channel Fast Amplifier

ORTEC 9310-16 Sixteen Channel Fast Amplifier
  • Rise Time <1.5-ns (for unipolar ≤±25 mV inputs).
  • DC Coupled to allow high counting rates.
  • Two Outputs for each Amplifier allows simultaneous counting and timing.

With large arrays of detection devices, the amplitudes can often require more gain to be capable of time discrimination or to drive a counter or some other sensor. The 9310-16 provides a full sixteen channels of amplification in a single width NIM. Two channels can be cascaded for a gain of up to 100 should your experiment require it. An offset adjustment and DC coupling allow for higher counting rates and less baseline distortion encountered with AC coupled amplifiers. 

For signals from arrays of photomultiplier tubes, electron multipliers, microchannel plates, or photodiodes, the 9310-16 provides dual outputs from each channel to reduce the need for an additional fan-out for counting and timing applications.
