Medipix 2 and Medipix 3 are collaborations between number of European Universities and Research Institutes. The aim of the Collaboration is to carry out the design and evalutation of the semiconductor pixel detectors called Medipix (or newly Timepix). The hybrid silicon pixel detector device Medipix was designed for imaging by single quantum counting in each pixel. The device consists of a pixelated sensor chip and a read-out chip containing the amplifier, discriminators and counter(s) for each pixel.
