Medipix 3 now available

From now on we are able to deliver our products with the newest readout chips: Medipix 3. It acts the same as previous version, but aims to go much further with its colour imaging and dead time free operation. The Medipix3 pixel readout architecture seeks to mitigate the effect of charge sharing by summing charge between neighbouring pixels and allocating the sum or hit to the individual pixel with the highest collected charge. This led to a higher accuracy compared to the previous version. Moreover, by using a more advanced CMOS technology, it became possible to integrate two counters on a single small pixel, permitting one image to be taken while the previous one is being read out.
