Development

For more than 25 years, GBS Elektronik GmbH has been designing and developing equipment and systems in the field of nuclear technology and high-voltage pulsing technology. Another area concerns the development of electronic equipment and systems according to the specifications of our customers. Our development work can be subdivided into the following tasks:

  • Development of assemblies
  • Development of soft- and firmware
  • Layout creation according to customer wiring diagrams
  • Creation of complete production records from sketches and documents of our clients
  • Support of the entire production process
  • Modification and retrofitting of equipment and systems
  • Review and further development of the products

To provide highest possible comfort and full potential of our products, we develop special customized applications to control devices, for instance our entire MCA-527 family. This includes applications to handle micro controllers, firmware programming, hardware configuration and programs for the processing and analysis of collected data. The supported operating systems reach from Microsoft Windows, Linux, and DOS up to mobile systems, such as Windows Mobile.

Detector512 and Detector3000 for example

The Detector512 is a modular measuring system for measuring x-ray radiation on a maximum of 512 channels. In essence, it consists of one control unit and up to eight measuring cards. Four detector modules, each consisting of the radiation-sensitive detector with 16 pixels and 16 preamplifiers, can be connected to each measurement card.

The control computer is connected via a USB2.0 interface. The measuring system is operated from the computer. A maximum memory expansion of the measuring system of up to 4GB is possible. A sampling rate of 1MS/s is reached per channel; the resolution is always 12bit.
 
The detector3000 can measure 3000 channels and has a much larger memory; sampling rate and resolution are equivalent to the detector512. In principle, the system can be expanded as desired, and the memory can also be expanded indefinitely. However, the systems become very large and current intensive.

The detectors are used where unseen areas and extremely fast processes have to be visualized. For example, they system allows to image the mixing of substances in a centrifuge.
