Several detector systems being built in Europe such as FAZIA, GASPARD, TRACE and HYDE are exploiting digital pulse shape analysis (DPSA) techniques aiming to achieve an efficient and low cost particle identification system. Recent works stress the importance of an accurate control of the used-detector properties, like the resistivity non-homogeneity and the silicon crystal orientation. The research carried out by these groups are pushing the limits of particle discrimination at both ends of the energy spectra, going from 1 MeV to few GeV.
