@MazianLab: Gamma Rays are definitely something that requires special handling given health and security concerns. Modeling the behavior is good but it definitely needs to be an accurate model. One option is to record the behavior of the current source when using the real isotopes and then play that back. Do this for various types of readings. One thing I would strongly suggest is to add some datalogging capability on your side of the device that can capture the timing, the amplitude, the wave shape, etc. Then when you are able to test it with the real stuff, you can compare a real wave form against the simulated wave form. I would also suggest leaving that capability in when you ship the product so that when it is used in an unusual situation, you can retrieve the waveform and figure out why. A good test suite would then be running your code in a test harness and then feeding it each of these different sampled waveforms. I'm limited here by not being able to draw pictures or ask you questions. Contact me if you want more help on this.
