Paper Abstract

This paper reports the design trade off study of the design of an innovative CMOS active pixel sensor (CAPS) based on Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology. The CAPS designs approach provides the flexibility and high-density features of hybrid pixel sensors with photon counting architecture. This sensor is the key component for optimized X-ray Tomosynthesis. A proof-ofprinciple test chip, paying particular attention to the noise performance of the pixel, front-end electronics (FEE) and readout speed, is available for testing in 2008. We present the design of the test chip in this paper.
