Abstract

ABSTRACT

Based on field programmable gate array (FPGA), we propose a QA/QC test procedures to validate and verify the operation and the data obtained from newly developed charge collection efficiency (CCE) measurement system.  The QA/QC test procedures were able to detect, in the system, the Multi-Channel Analyser (MCA)’s improper operation. This could not be detected by a normal test run whilst the operation of the amplifier; counter; and timer were validated and verified. 

ABSTRAK

Prosedur pengujian QA/QC telah dicadangkan untuk menentusahkan sistem pengukuran kecekapan kutipan cas (CCE) berasaskan papan lapangan barisan get terprogram (FPGA). Prosedur pengujian QA/QC berupaya mengesan kendalian  tak wajar penganalisa berbilang saluran (MCA) yang tidak boleh dikesan oleh ujilari biasa.  Manakala kendalian penguat, pembilang dan pemasa telah ditentusahkan.
