144 Preamplifiers, 144 Shaping Amplifiers, 144 Time2Amplitude Converters, 288 Analog Memories and 288 Analog to Digital Converters Application Specific Electronics for Sensor Systems Enabling the Real-World Use of Sensors Highly Integrated Electronics Enable Use of Novel Sensor Technologies Many novel sensor technologies have been conceived and implemented at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to address a cadre of measurement problems. Moving those technologies from the laboratory to the real world has always required electronics to acquire the signal of interest from the sensor itself, perform some appropriate signal processing and then transform the processed signal to useful information. The laboratory has a rich history of electronics research and development dating all the way back to the days of early radiation detection instrumentation. That capability has always served as an enabler for measurements associated with important research and development projects.

Today's sensor technologies are capable of providing highly sensitive measurements. The Lab's electronics capabilities have kept pace taking full advantage of even the most advanced, high performance sensors.
