We present an active pixel matrix for high rate, spectroscopic and imaging X-ray detection. It is foreseen as a wide field imager on the XEUS (X-ray Evolving Universe Spectroscopy) satellite. A 1024 × 1024 pixel device with pixel sizes of 50 -75 µm shall cover an area of 76 mm × 76 mm. A single pixel consists of a p-channel DEPFET (DEPleted Field Effect Transistor). It is realized on high-ohmic detector grade silicon allowing the bulk to be fully depleted to achieve high quantum efficiency. Indoi:10.1109/23.872989 fatcat:zjsbjf5225ghzgzjtmsdeyaqwu
