An MCA analyzes a stream of voltage pulses and sorts them into a histogram, or “spectrum” of number of events, versus pulse-height, which may often relate to energy or time of arrival.

Southern Scientific offers different compact MCA capable of performing Pulse Height Analysis of a signal produced by a standard scintillation detector such as NaI(Tl), LaBr3, CeBr3, etc. All the MCAs can be easily interfaced to a PC or notebook for further data transfer and analysis.
