AdvaPIX imaging detector is designed with emphasis on fast frame rate, which goes up to 1700 frames/s. The camera module contains a single Timepix chip that can be connected to a computer with USB3.0 interface. The sustainable high frame rate makes it optimal for X-ray imaging of dynamic processes, for spectral X-ray imaging or ion detection. Advanced data processing algorithms allow ion detection with spatial super-resolution of up to 200 nm.

AdvaPIX can be used in a variety of applications, such as fast radiography (X-rays, neutrons, ions), spectroscopic imaging (each pixel records the energy spectrum), particle tracking or Time-of-flight imaging. The sensor type and thickness can be customized and sensors can be also adapted for neutron imaging by deposition of a converter layer (6LiF). The spatial resolution, in some applications (thermal neutrons), can reach units of microns or even submicrometric level (ions).
