A hybrid pixel detector with single photon counting mode has been designed for the High Energy Photon Source in China. It features a pixel size of 150 μm × 150 μm and a frame rate up to 1.2 kHz with 20-bit dynamic range. Six modules were assembled as the first prototype system, covering an area of 9 cm × 10 cm with 360k pixels. Images have been taken using X-ray and synchrotron radiation light, and the preliminary detector performance is presented. © 2017 IOP Publishing Ltd and Sissa Medialab srl.
