FTA820A Octal Fast Timing Amplifier

ORTEC FTA820A Octal Fast Timing Amplifier
  • For amplifying fast analog signals from photomultipliers, electron multipliers, photodiodes, micro-channel plates, and silicon charged-particle detectors
  • ≤1 ns rise time
  • Gain:  200
  • Output drives –5 V into 50 Ω
  • Eight separate and identical amplifiers in a single-width NIM
  • ≤20 µV rms equivalent input noise

The FTA820A Amplifier is a high-performance, wide-bandwidth amplifier designed for boosting very fast linear signals from photomultipliers, electron multipliers, silicon charged-particle detectors, and other detectors used in fast timing applications. The rise time is <1 ns with a 5-V output, enabling excellent timing resolution.

The FTA820A provides eight separate and identical amplifiers in a single-width NIM module. Each FTA820A amplifier section has a gain of 200, noninverting. LEMO type 00C50 connectors are used for all signal connections.
