ABSTRACT
An operational transconductance amplifier based fast charge-integrating module (FCIM) is designed and developed for an easy acquisition of fast Thomson scattered and background signal. FCIM based data acquisition technique can be used for the measurement of charge pulses of <20 ns duration. The response of the module is tested using a standard pulsed charge-generating module. The measuring charge range of the module depends on the integrating capacitor. Comparison of the performance of FCIM to commercially available module shows that it has better dynamic range with higher sensitivity and less measurement error. The module is quite cost effective and has many new features.
