XIA First to License SITORO® for World’s Fastest X-ray DPP

XIA First to License SITORO® for World’s Fastest X-ray DPP

The stage is set for the world’s first X-ray digital pulse processor (DPP) incorporating SITORO® Accelerated Analysis. Southern Innovation today signed a licence agreement allowing XIA, of Hayward, CA, to implement SITORO in their revolutionary FalconX product. It will be available from October 2011.

Southern Innovation made the announcement today at the 60th Annual Denver X-Ray Show. The deal is the first worldwide technology license for SITORO. Combining a cutting-edge hardware platform with SITORO technology, FalconX virtually eliminates the effects of pulse pile-up. It allows unprecedented throughput rates without traditional resolution loss providing a platform for significant advances in a range of scientific and industrial applications. FalconX offers:

  • Up to 10x faster analysis without traditional loss of measurement resolution
  • Stable and accurate results at over 1.5 million counts per second with low dead time
  • XIA’s intuitive, market-leading user interface with versatile “plug & play” hardware setup.

“We are excited to have XIA incorporate SITORO into FalconX as our first technology licensee,” said David Scoullar, Managing Director of Southern Innovation. “After ten years of research and development, SITORO  will allow FalconX users to benefit from a quantum leap in throughput rate without traditional resolution loss. Licensing our patented SITORO  technology algorithms will enable significantly faster analysis for users across many industry segments”.

“FalconX is a new generation of processing technology,” said XIA President Peter Grudberg. “XIA’s combination of rock-solid hardware and our intuitive interface have made us the industry leader in DPP technology. Now with FalconX we’ve worked closely with Southern Innovation to develop a product that can deliver analysis in a fraction of the time.”
