Abstract in different language: This paper introduces a readout system for the Timepix2. Firstly, this chip is described and the readout modes are discussed in detail. The new readout system presented is based on the Gigabit Ethernet interface and implements pre-processing, i.e. decoding of the raw pixel data, directly in the hardware. The device suppresses zero pixels, so that only useful data are sent to the computer/server. In a special independent mode, the readout can send completed data files to a remote server via SSH and does not need to use a control software. In island mode, the device stores measured data to a local storage (SD card). The process of calibration and its results are also discussed. An energy resolution of approximately 1.5 keVwas achieved for 60 keVgamma-rays from an 241Am source. We present enhanced features of the readout system facilitating measurements and data evaluation, such as the HW support of clustering and Matrix Occupation Control. The former implements the pixel clustering directly in the hardware and sends energy calibrated results of the cluster finding algorithm to the computer. The latter automatically controls acquisition time of detector in order to reduce cluster overlapping. Measurements with Timepix2 are presented in iron and electron test beams. Results show that pixels of Timepix2 saturate at a per-pixel energy deposition of 1.9 MeV.
