Photon counting CMOS chip developed at IFAE for the ERICA project

The project ERICA (Energy Resolving Line Camera) is aimed at developing a new x-ray camera for industrial applications with energy resolution. The project includes the development of a new photon counting CMOS specifically designed for this purpose.

The design and production of this pixel chip, based on TSMC 0.25um CMOS technology, has just been successfully completed. The packaging and mounting process of the ERICA sensor (this includes solder bump deposition, flip chip, pick and place, and wire-bonding) were done in situ by the IFAE team.

The chip is specifically designed for applications such as non-destructive quality control testing or security X-ray scanners in the airports.

The future plan is to put more than one ERICA sensors to form a 100mm line X-ray camera operating in synchronize with the moving belt and X-ray source to make a small X-ray inline scanner to test and evaluation.
