Abstract

The n_TOP facility at CERN has been designed for the measurement of neutron capture, fission and (n, xn) crosssections with high accuracy. This requires a flexible and--due to the high instantaneous neutron flux-almost dead time free data acquisition system. A scalable and versatile data solution has been designed based on 8-bit flash-ADCs with sampling rates up to 2 GHz and 8 Mbyte memory buffer. The software is written in C and C++ and is running 011 PCs equipped with RedHat Linux.
