Core competencies

CAEN is one of the most important spin-offs of the Italian Nuclear Physics Research Institute, founded
in Viareggio (Lucca) in 1979. CAEN (www.caen.it) designs and manufactures sophisticated electronic
equipment for nuclear physics research and is today the world’s leading companies in the field: there
are several hundreds of thousand CAEN Low/High Voltage and data acquisition channels now working
in all the most important Nuclear Physics Laboratories over the World. In the last years CAEN
diversified its offer, extending its market, taking part into national and international programs and
becoming a real “Innovation Company”. In this way CAEN joined to its core business new experiences
in new fields such as the UHF Radio frequency identification, the microelectronics, the aerospace
applications, biomedicine, and homeland security.
CAEN is known today as the only company in the world able to offer, besides a complete range of
power supply and data acquisition systems, a large choice of Front-End modules (NIM, CAMAC, VME,
VME-64) implemented using ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) developed inside the
company itself. CAEN has been involved in the design of sophisticated electronic equipment for
nuclear and particle physics experiments in the Large Hadrons Collider (LHC) project at CERN
(Genève), taking part to the development of the main experiments: CMS, ATLAS, ALICE. Most of the
electronic circuits used in these experiments shall work in a very high radiation environment (5
KGauss) with high magnetic fields and quite difficult accessibility.
CAEN portfolio includes today more than 250 products, ranging from power supply systems to data
acquisition boards and crates. Its catalogue is printed in 10.000 copies and widespread in all research
centres all over the world. Besides catalogue products CAEN offers custom solutions dedicated to the
different customers’ needs, which reach the 40% of the annual production. The quality of its products
is monitored during all the production cycle and guaranteed by the UNI EN ISO 9001:2000 certification
obtained in 1997.
From the point of view of the Project Management, CAEN was partner in several projects from the
European to national and regional level. Some of them are:

• EuriTrack under FP6
• SlimPort under INDUSTRIA 2015 Italian program
• ASCOLTA under regional financing TOSCANA, where CAEN is Coordinator
• MODES_SNM under FP7
