SIB064-1018 Sensor Interface Board Hamamatsu H8500

SIB064-1018 Sensor Interface Board Hamamatsu H8500 / H10966
Product Sheet
Description
The SIB064-1018 multianode photomultiplier tube interface board provides
the mechanical and electrical connectivity between the Hamamatsu H8500 or
H10966 64 anode PMT and external signal processing electronics such as
Vertilon’s PhotoniQ multichannel data acquisition systems. The H8500 /
H10966 is mounted to the bottom side of the SIB064-1018 through 144
socket pins that connect the PMT’s 64 anode signals and last dynode output
to the board. The anode signals are routed to an on-board resistive anger
logic circuit that generates four anger signal outputs. These outputs connect
using four coaxial cables to Vertilon’s PhotoniQ IQSP418 or IQSP518
multichannel data acquisition system where the charge from each is
separately integrated, digitized, and sent to a PC for display or further signal
processing. For applications utilizing the last dynode output of the H8500 /
H10966, the SIB064-1018 includes a two stage high speed preamplifier
whose output is available on an SMB connector. One of three on-board
discriminators can be used with the last dynode signal to generate a trigger
to the data acquisition system or other external electronics. The outputs from
a leading edge, constant fraction, and zero slope discriminator — which
respectively generate trigger signals based on threshold, percentage of pulse height, and pulse peak — are available on
SMB connectors. Several user adjustments are included for optimizing system gain and trigger thresholds for the
discriminators. When using an H8500C or H10966A PMT, the negative high voltage bias to the PMT’s cathode is supplied
through their high voltage cables. This cable is compatible with the high voltage SHV output from the PhotoniQ.
Alternatively, when using an H8500D or H10966B, four optional socket pins can be added to the board for direct connection
of the PMTs high voltage input. In this case, the high voltage bias is supplied through the SIB064-1018 on a specialized
cable from the PhotoniQ.
