AdvaPIX camera is designed with special emphasis to performance and versatility that is often required in scientific research world. The camera module contains a single Timepix device with a quick parallel readout. It allows a sustainable frame rate of up to 1700 frames/ second that makes it optimal for spectral imaging and ion detection. Advanced data processing algorithms allow ion detection with spatial resolution of up to 200 nm.

AdvaPIX can be used in variety of applications such as fast radiography (X-rays, neutrons, ions), particle tracking, spectroscopic imaging (each pixel records the energy spectrum), Time-of-flight imaging, multilayer Compton camera (thin top sensor, thick bottom sensor). The sensor type and thickness can be customized as per requirements and can also be modified for neutron imaging by depositing converter layer (6LiF). The spatial resolution in some applications, like thermal neutrons, can reach units of microns or even submicrometric level (ions).
