Timepix STPX-65k is a versatile Hybrid pixel detector suitable for a wide range of applications.
The capability of Timepix to discriminate or measure energy of X-rays in each of its 65k pixels Offers unprecedented possibilities for X-ray detection, imaging and tomography.
Timepix STPX-65k can be used also for precise spatially resolved electron and heavy charged particle detection.
Timepix STPX-65k consists of a sensor that is a silicon diode divided into an array of pixels (256x256). Each pixel is connected via bump-bond ball to the readout electronics integrated in the chip below the sensor. The electronics in the pixels processes the signals from the sensor. An individual pixel either counts number of detected events, measures amount of energy deposited in the pixel or measures time of arrival of the detected quantum.
The image from the detector is acquired to a computer through 1GBit/s Ethernet connection.The readout provides frame rates up to 120 frames/s. The readout software supports all major operating systems. Libraries are provided for integration to custom data-acquisition systems.
