This application note will show how to support a scientific application with an FPGA firmware, consisting of a signal discriminator with an arbitrary but fixed hardcoded threshold, designed and compiled with Sci-Compiler programming language and run on the SciDK development board.

In order to build and demonstrate the project the CAEN DT4800 signal generator will also be used and connected to both the board and an oscilloscope via a split T.

The LEMO Digital I/O port available on the SciDK will send the discriminated signal to the oscilloscope for further analysis.
