The FAST Comtec constant-fraction discriminators (CFD) are still state-of-the-art even after a more than 20 Year history. The differential CFD - Model 7029A - still offers the highest counting rate (>50 MHz) of any such devices. The pulse-shape discriminator - Model 2160A - can be used to separate neutron and gamma particles, alphas and protons, electrons and alphas etc depending on the detector used.

See individual data sheets for more details and specific features, as well as for the NIM power requirements if applicable.
