Various position sensitive readout systems for microchannel plates are considered. A discrete anode detector with 192 channels and integrated data acquisition electronics developed at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth is presented. Details of the custom silicon circuit which performs data acquisition in the device are given, together with key performance indicators. An example application of the detector enhancing the performance of a GCMS measurement is given. The next generation of detector currently under development is briefly introduced.
