MiniPIX

MiniPIX camera contains single Timepix device with Silicon sensor. The energy sensitive imaging built into a small device brings a new dimension to radiographic imaging. The compact size allows the camera to be pushed into pipes or confined spaces and take images which is one of the distinguished advantage of MiniPIX. It uses USB 2.0 interface capable to read up to 45 frames per second.

MiniPIX can be equipped with pinhole, coded aperture or X-ray optics. The system can be used in imaging applications (e.g. X-ray or neutron imaging) and its ability to recognize individual particles, sort them to several groups (X-rays, electrons, neutrons, alphas etc.) and measure their energies is utilized as great advantage for radiation monitoring.
