Digitizer Families

CAEN has developed a complete family of digitizers that consists of several models differing in sampling frequency, resolution, form factor (VME, NIM, Desktop, Rack) and other features.
In recent years CAEN opened the doors of its R&D to the Open FPGA technology, which is becoming more and more widely used and required. In addition, we decided to invest many resources in order to make this technology accessible to everyone. These efforts result in innovative Programmable Digitizer families and the SCI-Compiler software for easy-programming of the Open FPGA simplifying firmware writing with a block-based visual programming language.

For more information about the principle of operation of CAEN Digitizers check the CAEN Digitizer Whitepaper.


VX2740

64 Channel 16 bit 125 MS/s Digitizer

The VX2740 Digitizer is a 64-channel digital signal processor for radiation detectors with a 16 bit, 125 MS/s ADC and Open FPGA.

Open FPGA Digitizers

CAEN Open FPGA Digitizers feature programmable Open FPGA, embedded ARM and significant architecture upgrades for improved performance:

  • Increase of acquisition memory buffer size: from SSRAM to DDR4;
  • Increased communication readout through 1/10 Gb Ethernet, USB 3.0;
  • More resources for DPP algorithms and support for Programmable Open FPGA;
  • Easier multi-board synchronization (clock and timing distribution);

5560 Digitizer Family

128/32 Channels, 14-bit @125MS/s Digitizer Open FPGA and Sci-Compiler software for easy firmware development Rack or Desktop form factor R5560/R5560SE...

Standard Digitizers

CAEN Standard Digitizers are platform independent instruments housing high speed (up to 5 GS/s) multichannel ADCs with local memory and FPGAs for real-time data processing.

Available in different form factors, VME, NIM and Desktop, they are the result of all the experiences collected by CAEN in signal processing and data acquisition systems and have been designed driven by physics and related applications as Medical Imaging, Homeland Security and Environmental Monitoring.
