This article describes performance of a new generation of the Micro-Pixel Avalanche Photodiode (MAPD). MAPD has the especially advances: gain can reach values of 105, photon detection efficiency is 30-35 % in a wide wavelength range and pixels density is 15000 pixels/mm2. Results of gamma-ray detecting measurements performed using LFS scintillating crystal by MAPD are also presented. Energy resolution was 11.5% and 6.5% for Cs-137 and Co-60.
