Test And Characterisation


Using our library of standard parts and subassemblies, a test and characterisation system can be put together. Often the only part which may need to be designed from scratch is a new interface headboard, if the detector is a new design. See our range of headboards for use with the XCU-A system, which provides a low-cost system comprising just a headboard, cable and controller which is suitable for your own integration into your vacuum chamber. Alternatively, we can design mounting parts to build into your test system, such as this one which we designed for ESA testing of the Euclid CCD.

We can supply parts built into a dewar enabling cryogenic cooling. We have provided detectors with fibre optic studs bonded, enabling the user to experiment with various scintillator types.
