Featured Products


The UltraLo-1800 is a revolutionary low background alpha-particle counter that employs Electronic Background Suppression to drive achievable background rates to 0.0001 alpha/cm2/hr or lower. This is a factor of 50 or more better than can be achieved by the conventional proportional counter systems that are now commercially available.

The FalconX family of digital pulse processors combine a cutting-edge hardware platform with patented SITORO® signal processing technology, uniting unprecedented technical performance with an innovative 'plug & play' design. XIA's FalconX family of digital pulse processors achieve unprecedented throughput at high count rates.

The microDXP is a complete, low power digital x-ray spectroscopy system on a credit card-sized PC board that can easily be incorporated into a wide range of embedded and handheld instruments.

The microDGF is a variant of the microDXP specifically designed for high resolution gamma-ray detectors, such as HPGe, achieving premium energy resolution and stability even at moderate to high count rates.

The DGF Pixie-Net is a multi-channel digital spectrometer for radiation detectors in desktop format with integrated networking and USB resources. The instrument supports high-precision coincidence gamma-ray spectroscopy using HPGe detectors, scintillators, or silicon detectors, and neutron/gamma discrimination, time-of-flight measurements, and coincidence/anti-coincidence measurements.

The Pixie-32 is designed to address needs in the nuclear physics community for instrumenting large scale radiation detectors at relatively low cost. The Pixie-32 is a true multi-channel spectrometer that not only digitally captures incoming waveforms but also provides good time and energy resolution at a per channel cost up to 10 times lower than other digital readout modules of similar capability.
