Title
(EN) SUMMATION FOR MULTI-CHANNEL PHOTOMULTIPLIER ARRAY SIGNALS
(FR) SOMMATION POUR SIGNAUX DE RÉSEAU DE PHOTOMULTIPLICATEURS À CANAUX MULTIPLES
Abstract
(EN)
A summation circuit (1) for summing one or more signals received from a photomultiplier array is proposed. The summation circuit comprises one or more readout circuits (5) coupleable to one or more photodiodes of the photomultiplier array (2), respectively, and a channel summing module (50), coupled at one or more outputs of the one or more readout circuits, respectively, to sum the one or more signals provided by the one or more readout circuits. The one or more readout circuits are coupleable to the photodiode of the photomultiplier array. Each readout circuit (5) comprises one or more coefficient controllers (C1, C2) for controlling multiplying coefficients of the received signal. The coefficient controllers may be placed at the input and/or at the output of the readout circuits (5).

La présente invention se rapporte à un circuit de sommation (1) qui permet de faire la somme d'un ou plusieurs signaux reçus en provenance d'un réseau de photomultiplicateurs. Le circuit de sommation comprend un ou plusieurs circuits de lecture (5) pouvant être couplés à au moins une photodiode du réseau de photomultiplicateurs (2), respectivement, et un module sommateur de canaux (50), couplé à au minimum une sortie dudit ou desdits circuits de lecture, respectivement, afin de faire la somme du ou des signaux délivrés par ledit ou lesdits circuits de lecture. Ledit ou lesdits circuits de lecture peuvent être couplés à la photodiode du réseau de photomultiplicateurs. Chaque circuit de lecture (5) inclut un ou plusieurs contrôleurs de coefficients (C1, C2) servant à commander des coefficients multiplicateurs du signal reçu. Les contrôleurs de coefficients peuvent être placés à l'entrée et/ou à la sortie des circuits de lecture (5).
