X-Ray Imatek (XRI) is a company aimed to research, develop, market and manufacture the ultimate detector technology for digital x-ray imaging. More than three decades of research experience. XRI provides its own products portfolio as well as customized systems for third party companies. XRI aims to position the company among the market leaders thanks to its innovative technology, ethics and high quality standards. Company Profile X-Ray Imatek is located in the Eureka Building, at the UAB Research Park in Bellaterra, Barcelona
One of the main competitive values of XRI is a multidisciplinary team of highly skilled people. Another great one are the sinergies with some prestigious research institutes in the new technologies area. Credentials
Technology It is a pixel-detector readout chip consisting of 256 x 256 identical elements, each working in single photon counting mode for positive or negative input charge signals. Each pixel occupies a total area of 55μm x 55μm where a 20μm octagonal opening connects the detector and the amplifier via bump bonding. The Medipix2/Timepix assembled in a baby board. The Medipix2/Timepix CMOS ASIC is a photon counting chip developed by an international Collaboration consisting of 17 research institutes and over 75 scientists at CERN, Switzerland. X-Ray Imatek span off IFAE, one of the initial members of the Medipix Collaboration. The Medipix2/Timepix Main Features · Pixels: 256 x 256 (65,536) · Pixel Size: 55 x 55μm · Area: (14.1 x 14.1) mm2 · Sensors: Si, CdTe, CdZte… · Count Rate: 1 MHz · Low Noise: < 75 e- · Low Power: <1 W/chip · Charge Collection: e-, h+
Low Dose Radiation By direct capturing the photon in the semi-conductor material, our technology uses all of the information contained in that photon. Bump- bonding the semi-conductor material to the pixel electronics allows us to employ different kinds of detector material depending on the application. By improving the DQE of the detector in each application we can significantly reduce the radiation dose when needed, specially in medical applications. Most Common Applications Applications in particle physics Non Destructive Testing X-Ray Imaging Astrophysics
Large Area Detection Large Area Field of View (FOV) The Timepix chip only covers an area of roughly 2 cm 2. In order to obtain large images, X-Ray Imatek has developed a multichip design built on a mechanical table which performs a 2D scan. This movement allows the detector to cover any area of interest in less than 1,5 sec. The user is unaware of the 2D motion and the full reconstructed image is presented as if it was taken with a monolithic detector X-Ray Imatek's technology developed for this detector provides a series of breakthrough advances in digital detectors by introducing: - A modular design that provides size flexibility and reduces costs. - An electronics design allowing direct x-ray capture, and photon counting, which significantly improves image quality. - The capability to use different semiconductor materials to maximize image quality while minimizing the radiation dose.
Sample Images taken with the XRI-1
Products The X-Ray Imateks XRI Series are the first affordable and completely portable x-ray detectors assembled with the succesful Medipix2 chip. Built either with a Silicon or CdTe sensor, it can be used for many purposes with a high level of performance. Features: · 55μm Pixel Pitch · 65K and 262K Image Resolution · High DQE · Selectable Pixel Operation Modes · High Contrast · Fast Adquisition · Up to 500 fps. · Variable Energy Threshold · Several Output Formats
The XRI Series Ready-to-Use Every XRI-UNO and QUATRO is a complete system ready to work, they only require a PC (Microsoft Windows OS) and a compatible outlet to operate.
