A novel x-ray area detector based on a large format charge-couple device (CCD) imaging array has been constructed and characterized. It was found to exhibit high signal to noise ratio, wide dynamic range and high spatial resolution. Tests with both conventional and synchrotron sources showed the detector to be highly suitable for x-ray diffraction studies.
