IDEAS readout ICs for ionizing radiation are designed to be used for radiation imaging and detection in ground and space applications.
IDEAS has a catalog of readout ICs for Silicon, CdTe, CZT (CdZnTe), SiPM, PMT, MPPC and other detector types.
If you need guidance in the selection of a readout IC for your application – please contact IDEAS.
Detectors: SiPM, PMT
Application: x-ray and gamma-ray spectroscopy, timing, counting, and imaging
Number of inputs: 16 INA, or 17 INB
Input charge range: Depends on programmable settings: Max. charge at INA: -40pC, -100pC, -200pC, -400pC, -800pC depending on setting. Max. charge at INB: +/-40pC In addition, 6 fine gain tunings, individual for each channel [mV/pC]: 46, 48, 51, 53, 55, 265
Shaping time: Globally programmable: 50ns, 150ns, 300ns, 2000ns
