The plasma display panel (PDP) is popular in the large area flat panel display market due to its relatively simple cell structure, low cost materials, and uncomplicated manufacturing process. The cell structure of PDP, which consists of electrodes and gas mixture, could be utilized in the manufacture of radiation detectors. In this study, we developed a plasma display panel based x-ray detector (PXD) based on Monte-Carlo simulation. This prototype detector panel has row and column strips, and it can thus be utilized as an imaging detector. To achieve the 2D x-ray image from the developed panel, a PXD dedicated driving and data acquisition circuit has been developed. Now we integrate the individual modules into a system. We hope to further study signal processing to achieve the first x-ray image of PXD.
