GridPix detector prototypes have been made using a TimePix pixel chip and a PSI 46 pixel chip. A system of discharge protection has been successfully tested. GridPix detectors have been tested using cosmic rays, a 90Sr source and the T9 test beam facility at CERN. GridPix detectors perform well for 3D track reconstruction, dE/dx measurements and transition radiation detection.
