Project Description: 
OrthoPix is a method and system for compressing data arranged in a data array, and frontend readout circuits.
The proposed mapping and readout technology provides a compression factor which is independent from the number of hit elements on the detector, roughly ranging from N/2 to N/4 for the preferred implementation, where N is the side size of a reference detector made by N2 sensitive elements. By reducing the total amount of data to be extracted from the detector, the proposed technology allows to increase the frame rate of the same amount, given a constant data bandwidth capability. This makes it possible to time-slice the incoming data, allowing to reconstruct the final image as a superimposition of single hits instead of an integrated image, increasing both spatial resolution and image structure information (time information is also available).
