Abstract: We describe novel electronics for processing signals from a microchannel plate detector using a resistive anode readout. High sampling-rate (MHz) Analogue-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) coupled to a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) combine to offer high spatial resolution 70 micrometre low noise <0.1 count cm^-1 s^-1 imaging over a large 93 mm x 93 mm imaging area. These new low-cost electronics form an integral part of a MCP-based system for digital autoradiography designed to image radiolabelled thin tissue slices and 1- and 2-D electrophoresis gels.
