Home/AdvaPIX/AdvaPIX TPX3


AdvaPIX TPX3 camera is designed with special emphasis on performance and versatility, which is often required in scientific research world. The camera module contains CERN’s latest Timepix3 device with ultra-fast sparse data readout to acquire up to 40 million hits/ second. The module uses USB 3.0 communication channel assuring quick read-out of the system.

The AdvaPIX TPX3 can be used in a variety of applications, such as energy resolved radiography (X-rays, neutrons, ions), time-of-flight imaging, multilayer Compton camera, particle tracking, and many others. The sensors can be modified for neutron imaging by depositing converter layer (6LiF). Recording individual hits together along with advanced data processing allows increased spatial resolution to units on a micron or even sub-micrometric level (for ions).

Compared to the older Timepix chip, the Timepix3 detector offers 6x better time resolution, 2x better energy resolution, 2x lower minimum energy threshold,  10x faster data transfer and zero dead time.
