Abstract

We are planning a future gamma-ray burst (GRB) mission HiZ-GUNDAM to probe the early universe beyond the redshift of z > 7. Now we are developing a small prototype model of wide-field low-energy X-ray imaging detectors to observe high-z GRBs, which cover the energy range of 1 - 20 keV. In this paper, we report overview of its prototype system and performance, especially focusing on the characteristics and radiation tolerance of high gain analog ASIC specifically designed to read out small charge signals.
