The theory of analogue pulse shaping for nuclear pulse-height spectroscopy is reviewed, with the emphasis on time-variant filtering and the so-called 'Harwell' (or 'Kandiah') processor. An enhanced analogue pulse processor design, based on the same principle, is presented. The new design offers greater versatility and computer control. The application of digital signal processing to this field is reviewed and the design of a real-time digital pulse processor is developed. Noise index calculations for FIR digital filters are presented.
