70 mm² FAST SDD®

This is the true State-of-the-Art!

Amptek has developed a 70 mm² FAST SDD® Detector in a TO-8 package. This is the same package that is used with all Amptek detectors. This makes the 70 mm² a drop in replacement (same package, same pin-out, same voltages). Triple the count rate vs. the 25 mm² SDD with the same performance.
