CAEN Bridges are controllers with enhanced data rate and extended interfacing capabilities that make them flexible and suitable for all the possible experimental setup.
The new CAEN
controllers are available in VME or Desktop form factors
with USB C
(2.0 or 3.0) and Gigabit Ethernet
interfaces for better compatibility
with host devices, also in a small form factor (A4818
) simplifying the use in mobile environments.
All CAEN Bridges feature
also an Optical Interface
with a transfer rate up to 80 MB/s. The optical link communication protocols used are the CONET1 or the newer CONET2. Through the CONET2
it is possible to handle the VMEbus through the CAEN VMEbus Optical Link Bridges or to control directly CAEN modules with built-in optical link.
