The Data Set

During flat field calibration operations at the XRCF in May of 1997, telemetry data and High Speed Tap data were taken simultaneously for a number of sources for all ten of the flight devices. The standard procedure was to begin a science run, then use the High Speed Tap to collect raw data frames for each of the chips being operated. After some processing, the event list generated from the raw High Speed Tap data frames can be directly compared with the events telemetered by the flight software.

The data set chosen for this comparison is TRW ID I-IAS-EA-2.017. The chip is s4 (aka. w457c4). The anode is silicon. The data set was captured on 09 May 1997 at 22:12 GMT.
