Vertilon Corporation, based in Westford Massachusetts, supply a range of products targeted towards applications that utilise single and multi-element charge-based sensors such as PMTs, SiPMs and APDs.
Their core product line is the PhotoniQ range of high performance multi-channel data acquisition systems that interface to optical sensors, collect and process their charge signals, and output the resulting data over a USB 2.0 connection to a PC.
PhotoniQ includes an 8-channel high speed photon counting system for use with SiPMs, APDs and PMTs.
Included drivers and a graphical user interface allow the user to display and log the data or pass it to custom designed applications running on the PC. The PhotoniQ instruments directly interface to optical sensors through coaxial cables or, for multi-element devices, using one of Vertilon's sensor interface boards (SIBs) that provide the electrical and mechanical connectivity.
Vertilon’s standard SIBs support several of the more common multi-element PMTs, SiPMs, and APD arrays on the market today.
For customers using unsupported sensors or needing specialised functionality, Vertilon offers an OEM program for custom and semi-custom electronics and software development. Additionally, the PhotoniQ product family is available in a line of OEM products that can be incorporated by our customers as a subassembly into more complex systems.
