CHIMERA is the only 4 pi-multidetector, used in intermediate nuclear physics experiments, able to perform mass identification of the reaction products. To this purpose, it employs time of flight measurements done with traditional time to digital converters. In order to improve the resolution in mass identification, we have applied digital signal processing to time of flight measurements. This paper presents the methodology for data analysis, the adopted algorithms and the results obtained at different sampling frequencies (mass identification up to A = 33 for the reaction products produced by a 20.5 MeV/u 20Ne beam on 27Al target).
