Expected STIX HXR count spectra for two real flares (GOES A6 and M7.7), shown as 10 s accumulations in default STIX science energy channels. In each plot, the black histogram with photon counting uncertainties is the detector-summed count spectrum made up of the thermal (red), nonthermal (blue), and background (green) components. Note that the contribution of the on-board calibration sources are not including in these simulations, and the background at low energies therefore appears artificially low.
