Environmental radiation monitoring based gamma spectroscopy require a multichannel analyzer (MCA) which functions to record and analyze nuclear radiation spectrum data. There are currently many studies related to MCA based on field programmable gate array (FPGA). But, the scope of these published research is complex and fragmented. This systematic literature review (SLR) main objective to analyze research trends and emerging themes research of MCA based on FPGA for gamma spectroscopy that was developed during last 10 years. This review was conducted by selecting papers from leading journals in scientific databases namely ScienceDirect, IEEE Xplore and Scopus. For papers selection process, specific keyword strings used for each database and paper selecting using inclusion and exclusion criterion. Selection of papers resulted in 38 selected papers. During 10 last 10 years, This reseach become hot of topic research especially in Asia. This SLR proves that performance of MCA based FPGA is reliable and compatible with various of detector types. This MCA has been used for spectroscopy applications such as monitoring radiation, diagnostic medicine, industrial imaging and security screening. The implications of this study can used as reference for future research of development MCA based FPGA for enviromental radiation monitoring based gamma spectroscopy.
