The long GRB 230320B (AstroSat CZTI detection: Navaneeth
et al., GCN Circ 33492) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray Burst 
Monitor (CGBM) at 21:12:22.70 UTC on 20 March 2023
The burst signal was seen by only the SGM detector.

The burst light curve shows a single pulse that starts
at T+2.4 sec, peaks at T+3.5 sec, and ends at T+20.3 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 16.5 +/- 4.0 sec
and 5.0 +/- 1.0 sec (40-1000 keV), respectively.

The ground-processed light curve is available at

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at Waseda University.
