The IDE-XCS-1000 series is a family of energy-resolved photon counting systems for x-ray and gamma photons. The detector system is delivered with an array of pixelated mono-crystal CZT sensors, arranged in a line pattern. The detector readout electronics is based on IDEAS proprietary frontend IC technology.
Three versions are available in the series, with 1, 3 and 6 energy threshold levels respectively. The multiple energy levels are counted in parallel.
Multiple detectors can be connected together in a larger synchronized counting system. Each detector unit includes input and output interfaces for synchronization.
The counting data is available over a standard Ethernet interface, using a custom TCP/UDP based readout and control protocol. The detector system is delivered with the “IDEAS Testbench Software” testing software and a detailed user manual, including an interface description for the packet protocol. On request a C API and/or LabVIEW API can also be delivered together with the detector system.
