The different collaborations
Learn about the different collaborations and the associated technologies
Since the first Medipix Collaboration started in the 90's there has been four different Medipix Collaborations, all with different goals, results and collaboration members. Currently, the Medipix2, Medipix3 and Medipix4 Collaborations are active, and as of today, the Medipix2 and the Medipix3 Collaborations offer licenses on its associated chips.
The Medipix1 collaboration was formed in the 1990's when the potential of the new technology to provide noise-free single-photon counting was demonstrated.
The Medipix3 Collaboration was formed in 2005 to develop the Medipix3 chip and the Timepix3 chip: now permitting colour imaging and dead time free operation.
The Medipix2 Collaboration was formed in 1999 with the aim of developing a single photon counting pixel detector readout chip using a 0.25 μm CMOS process.
The Medipix4 Collaboration was launched in 2017. The aim is designing pixel read-out chips fully prepared for TSV processing that may be tiled on all four sides.
