Modern VLSI technology allows the development of new class X-ray imaging detectors capable of capturing an image in various energy ranges in one shot. Such spectroscopic imaging detectors have a high demand for the spatial and energy resolution of individual photons. With decreas- ing size of pixels, the charge cloud generated by the primary photon interaction, and in high-Z materials also by the fluorescent photon interaction, is shared across several pixels. That limits both spatial and spectroscopy resolution. This paper presents a novel charge summing algorithm called Winner-Master-Slave and describes the functionality, implementation, and simulation of
the proposed algorithm in Verilog-AMS.
