DANTE - The Digital Pulse Processor for X-Ray Spectroscopy

DANTE is a Digital Pulse Processor specifically designed for X-ray spectroscopy. Available in single-channel and eight-channel desktop configuration, DANTE embeds years of experience in pulses processing by XGLab and it has been designed to match the most demanding requirements and features of Synchrotrons and high-end industrial applications.

Main characteristics

  • Availability: 1CH, 8CH and custom solutions upon requests
  • Pulse filtering: fixed trapezoidal
  • Low-energies: detection down to Beryllium (108eV) and Lithium (54eV)
  • Modular solution: easily extendable up to 32 channels by daisy chain
  • Special functionalities: Waveform scanner, Single Spectrum Mode, Mapping Mode, List Mode, Trigger/Gating mode combined list-waveform
  • System integration: SW libraries available for Windows & Linux. TANGO, EPICS, Python and LabView drivers available

Applications

  • X-ray fluorescence (XRF)
  • Low-energy micro-fluorescence X-ray spectroscopy (µ-XRF)
  • X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS, XANES, EXAFS)
  • Particle Induced X-ray Emission (PIXE)
  • Ultra-Fast XRF elemental mapping
