Project Description

This “real-time” or instant x-ray system incorporates a number of new technologies.  We had to integrate a glass thin-film transistor array (basically a pane of glass with several million pixel detectors on it) inside an custom aluminum case, connect custom integrated circuits to it via custom flex-circuit carriers.  The flex circuit carriers were bonded to circuit contacts on both ends and carried the image signal off the panel, converted it to digital information, and delivered it to an on-board processor.  The package requirements demanded a very low profile and significant signal & noise management within each module inside the single flat panel case.
