Software

Attention: Unless using the demo, all software packages must be completed by the user specific initialization files belonging to the appropriate delay line detector. The specific files are DLD_GPX3.INI and the TDC firmware file, which is named "*.RBT". These files have been provided as part of your detector package at delivery. You may either copy the initially delivered files into the updated software folder or alter an existing INI for the needs of your individual hardware. Be aware, that any INI alteration may come with the risk of wrong configurations and may lead to uncertainties in the behavior of your detector system.

Example Configuration Files
Example files for initialization (INI) and firmware (RBT) for the most common DLDs. Note, that the individual detector setup varies significantly even within the the same product series. Always tune your final initialization for your individual detector system by comparing against the INI files that have been delivered with your delay line detector package.
