AdvaPIX QUAD camera contains four single Timepix devices with quick parallel readout with a 4 mm2 central opening that allows the beam to pass through the device without any interruption. The AdvaPIX QUAD features a sustainable frame rate of up to 1300 frames/ second.

Each Timepix device has an independent USB 3.0 communication channel that assures fast read-out of the complete system. All modules in the system are operated synchronously and triggered independently. The thickness and type of sensor can be customized a s per requirements.

AdvaPIX QUAD is specially designed to perform both Wide Angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS) and Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS). The open space in the center of the camera completely eliminates the need of a beam stop in front of the camera.
