Abstract Advanced C++ programming methods as well as fast Pulse Detection Algorithms (PDA) have been implemented in order to increase the computing speed of a LabVIEW™ data processing software developed for a Digital Pulse Shape Discrimination (DPSD) system for liquid scintillators. The newly implemented PDAs are described and compared: the most efficient method has been implemented in the data processing software, which has also been ported into C++. The comparison of the computing speeds of the new ... Title of program: DPDS - Digital Pulse Detection Software Catalogue Id: AEHQ_v1_0 Nature of problem A very slow pulse detection algorithm, used as standard in LABView, is preventing the ability to process achieved data during the pause between plasma discharges in modern tokamaks. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEHQ_v1_0; DPDS - Digital Pulse Detection Software; 10.1016/j.cpc.2010.10.017 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
