MiniPIX

Portable Small USB Camera

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 inserted into pipes or confined spaces and take images otherwise difficult to make. 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) as well as for radiation monitoring where its ability to recognise individual particles, sort them to several groups (X-rays, electrons, neutrons, alphas etc.) and measure their energies is utilised with great advantage.

  • MiniPIX is About as Fun as a Product Can Get
    MiniPIX is teeny and deceptively simple to use, but if you’re in space, you’ve just survived a nuclear apocalypse, or you’re a physics fan interested in how much radiation hits you on a daily basis, it’s about as fun as a product can get.
