The recent advances in GEM detector development has led to the requirement of a custom readout to fully exploit the advantages of this technology. GEM detectors can be realized with various shapes, also irregular, and high number of channels. GEMINI has been specifically designed to work with Triple-GEM detectors and it integrates 16 channels to perform readout with both analog and digital signal with Time over Threshold. GEMINI also allows to set a different threshold for every channel to compensate channel inhomogeneity. This work compares simulations with lab measurements and presents results of the imaging of an X-ray source performed with GEMINI.
