A compact two-dimensional neutron detector was developed for iBIX instrument in the J-PARC/MLF. The specifications required for the detector were a spatial resolution of less than 1 mm, a detector efficiency of more than 50% for thermal neutrons, a $$gamma$$ sensitivity of less than 10$$^{6}$$, detector coverage of around 15$$times$$15 cm$$^{2}$$ with least dead area, compactness, modularity, and a pulse pair resolution of less than 2 $$mu$$s. The detector components were studied in detail and optimized for the purpose. The compact prototype detector that has a neutron sensitive area of 13.3$$times$$13.3 cm$$^{2}$$ was made and feasibility of the detector was demonstrated successfully in the experiments at the ISIS pulsed neutron source.
