Digitizer Families

VME, NIM, Desktop form factor / up to 5 GS/s, up to 14-bit / from 1 to 64 channels / VME64X, Optical Link and USB 2.0 / Open FPGA.

Digitizers 2.0 / The New Digitizer Line

Improvement of Performances, Open FPGA and embedded ARM

lncrease of acquisit1ion memory buffer size: from SSRAM to DDR4 (~> from MBs to GBs) / Increased communication readout through 1/10 Gb Ethernet, USB 3.0 / Single
FPGA (Xilinx Zynq US+ ) architecture~> more resources for DPP algorithms and support for “Open FPGA” / Easier multi-board synchronization (clock and timing distribution).

Digitizer families

CAEN 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.

Open Digitizer families

CAEN recently 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 Digitzer families and the SCI-Compiler software for easy-programming of the open FPGA.

SCI-Compiler is a user-friendly software that simplifies firmware writing with a block-based visual programming language. It is based on a block-diagram programming language and it generates VHDL firmware code starting from graphical design, so making the firmware coding accessible to everyone.
