22 October 1999 Design and performance of the ASTRO-E/XRS signal processing system
Author Affiliations +
We describe the signal processing system of the Astro-E XRS instrument. The Calorimeter Analog Processor provides bias and power for the detectors and amplifies the detector signals by a factor of 20,000. The calorimeter digital processor performs the digital processing of the calorimeter signals, detecting x-ray and risetime determination. We also discuss performance, including the three event grades, anticoincidence detection, counting rate dependence, and noise rejection.
