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.
- 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
- 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
