Abstract

A pulse-sequence data acquisition system is designed in order to realize the multi input-channel measurement. In this system, arrival-time data of each pulse coming from radiation detectors is recorded by using a personal computer (PC). For the multi input-channel data acquisition, a `flag' is tagged on each arrival-time data in order to identify the input-channel of the pulse. And the counting losses due to the existence of the PC's processing time are expected to be reduced by employing First-In-First-Out (FIFO) memory unit. In order to estimate this system's performance, a computer simulation was taken place as follows: Poisson pulse trains which have various mean pulse rates (1 to approximately 600 kcps), were generated with Monte Carlo simulation technique. These pulse trains were dealt with a calculation code which simulated this system with the FIFO memory unit of various size (0 to approximately 100 stacks). Then the both pulse trains, generated and recorded, were compared in detail. And the differences of single and multi input-channel measurement which occurred because of the existence of the conflicting processes were also discussed.
