Amsterdam Scientific Instruments (ASI) has acquired a license from CERN for the TIMEPIX3 technology, a core component for ASI’s next generation hybrid pixel cameras. With the newly obtained license the company can now deliver the systems commercially.
ASI is a spin-off from Nikhef, the Dutch institute of Particle Physics. Since its foundation in 2005, ASI is a licensee of MEDIPIX technologies and has been collaborating with Nikhef in the development and commercialization of hybrid pixel cameras based on MEDIPIX technology. TIMEPIX3 is the most recent result of a joint research effort of the MEDIPIX 3collaboration led by CERN.
The new TIMEPIX3 based cameras can be used in a wide range of applications varying from X-ray imaging, electron microscopy to particle track reconstruction.
