Cutting-edge Technology Since 1988


Nuclear & Particle Physics

Front-end Instrumentation, Power Supplies, Powered Crates... and more!

CAEN Electronic Instrumentation is one of the first product lines xtronix started marketing back in 1988.

CAEN activities are at the forefront of the technology thanks to years of intensive collaborations with the major Research Centers and Universities around the world and enjoys a privileged market position internationally as well as in Switzerland. The company operative field is focused on two main areas: nuclear physic research (both high & medium-low energies) and its fall-out applications. But in addition, close to 20% of the company's production is in custom designs; a reminder that if you do not immediately find what you need, please contact us!

The company is leader in the design and manufacture of sophisticated electronic instrumentation for sub-nuclear, nuclear and astroparticle physics: Low Voltage & High Voltage Power Supply Systems, Signal Conditioning, Front- End, Trigger, Data Acquisition Electronics (VME, NIM, CAMAC), Digitizers and Powered Crates.

Digital Pulse Processing

In recent years, thanks to the availability on the market of flash ADC more and more fast and precise, applications in the field of nuclear physics (and related fields) have started to make large use of data acquisition systems based on digitizers. Compared to the traditional analog acquisition systems, in which the A/D conversion was performed only at the end of the chain, the new systems have reversed the approach: the conversion to digital is performed as close as possible to the source of the signal (output of the detector or preamplifier). After the ADC, special algorithms can be applied for the extraction of the quantities of interest, creating digital filters and data processing blocks that, in most cases, are very similar (at least from a functional point of view) to the old and familiar analog circuits, such as timing filter, shaper, CFD, baseline restorer. The benefits of the digital approach are great stability and reproducibility, ability to reprogram and tailor the algorithms, ability to preserve the information of the signal along the entire acquisition chain, etc.
