Aurora series

Digital X-ray detector solutions delivering value in simplicity for end-to-end systems.

Aurora is a product family of digital X-ray detector solutions powering all security and a variety of industrial line-scanners. The product family consists of a wide range of stand-alone detectors, and all needed building blocks, like ready-made detector boards, modules and readout electronics, for end-to-end systems. Aurora provides superior image quality and a fully digitalized data path in the most robust, modular and easily scalable platform. It is a plug-and-play type solution speeding up time-to-market and delivering total cost savings.

The product family has the highest level of integration and a simplified system design. Fewer parts in the bill of materials means minimized risks, a streamlined supply chain, and detector solutions that are mechanically more robust and digitally enhanced.

Aurora is powered by an application-optimized, single-chip ASIC mitigating the impact of external interferences. The ASIC features the lowest noise, and its 127 gain options make the best of signal level and optimize performance of the imaging chain. The ASIC has three operating modes, constant time, continuous and non-continuous, and built-in pixel binning options of x2, x4 and x8. The reliable, moisture-protected micro-BGA package ensures the longevity of this key component and usability in the target applications.

Aurora detector solutions are available in pixel pitch options of 1.2, 1.5, 1.6, 2.5, and 5.0. The Aurora product family comes with multiple scintillator options for various energy ranges in single and dual energy imaging applications. The detector family has a backward-compatible mechanical outline and software interface, making it straightforward to upgrade systems to the next generation. It has a robust Gigabit Ethernet interface, and a software development kit available to support easy integration. Moreover, the design pay attention to the requirements of Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution.

The essence of simplicity

Taking Aurora to its origins, the simple yet unique northern nature. The wild nature seems to perform always in the simplest way, getting rid of everything unnecessary yet providing a breathtaking value. The very same approach have been adopted, when designing the Aurora product family. Watch a movie ›
