Design and Development of a Microcontroller Based Nuclear Counting System

M. Nazrul Islam, Kh. Asaduzzaman and Mahbubul Hoq


In this study, researchers attempt to describe a 4-digit micontroller based Nuclear Counting System. The system includes PIC microcontroller as the key device that avoids lots of conventional analog circuitry. Hence, the system is compact, low cost, least noise, better accuracy and independent of nominal memory mapping. The system has been designed with GM detector and locally developed high voltage power supply. MPlab, assembly language program development environment, controls the operation of the designed system. The system has been tested with standard pulser from accredited manufacturer for its performance verification.
