cosmic-rays semiconductor-detector ionizing-radiation


PIN diode semiconductor radiation detector analog front-end.


This is an open-source hardware design, one of the modules from the MLAB labolatory system.

PIND02 - Solid-state semiconductor radiation detector

The PIN diode semiconductor detector for ionizing radiation.

Main features

  • sensitivity to a wide range of ionizing radiation types (charged particles, ions, photons, etc.)
  • Low-power consumtion
  • lightweight

Basic usage

The module outputs pulses, which need to be digitized for computer processing. The suitable hardware for that task is PCRD07
