Saturation Effect of Delta Response of Readout Electronics

Dear Experts

I saw in the manual the electronic signal will be calculated by convoluting the induced charge by a delta response function. But as we all know if the voltage of an amplifier exceed the Vcc (5V for typical value) the waveform will be saturated at the peak area. I wonder if this effect is implemented in Garfield++, and if not is there a way to apply it? (My stupid idea will be adding some if conditions…)

Hi @Crisps; I am sure @hschindl can help you with this.


signal processing in Garfield++ (i. e. convoluting the induced current pulse with the delta response function of the shaper/amplifier) is limited to linear devices. Maybe you can reproduce the effect you mention by post-processing the convoluted signal?
