Claim of US Patent No. 11,012,642

1. A method of configuring a detecting apparatus comprising:electronically and mechanically connecting a motherboard to at least one dead-zone-less detector module having an electrical substrate;
providing a multi-tier 3D integrated ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) comprising at least one analog tier and at least one digital tier connected to at least one segmented sensor;
bonding at least one tier of said multi-tier 3D integrated ASIC to said at least one segmented sensor;
bonding at least one tier of said multi-tier 3D integrated ASIC to said electrical substrate of said at least one dead-zone-less detector module;
mounting at least one data processing, computation, and transmission circuit, wherein said at least one data processing, computation, and transmission circuit, onto a side of said at least one dead-zone-less detector module opposite said at least one multi-tier 3D integrated ASIC; and
configuring a thermal management system comprising a cooling system that includes a chiller and a heat exchanger, wherein said heat exchanger is located within a detecting apparatus head and between said motherboard and said at least one dead-zone-less detector module.
