In any of the modern 4π particle detector array improvements of the measured parameters have been envisaged. Pulse shape discrimination (PSD) is an efficient electronic tool which can be applied to a single detector to achieve atomic number Z separation of the particles comparable to the ΔE - E telescopes. In the present study, a simple PSD device based on commercially available modules has been discussed with the motivation of future improvement in CHIMERA detector system without sacrificing time resolution in time of flight (TOF) measurement. In beam studies of PSD have been carried out following the ejected particles from 19F + 12C reaction at tandem energies with 2 large area - 300 μm - silicon detectors of CHIMERA multi-detector. Front-side and rear-side entry of the detected ions were explored. Performance of the PSD set up has been discussed.
