Cerntech Ltd.


Cerntech Engineering is a spin-off company founded in 1997 by engineers working on the development of reliable, high performance data transmission links for data acquisition systems for CERN (European Organization of Nuclear Research) and other HEP institutes (High Energy Physics).

Our main activities include the design and production of high-speed data links that move high data volumes using up-to-date serial, optical transmission; and interface cards for the data source (front-end electronics, imaging sensors, digital cameras, etc.) and the data destination (server computers, RAID systems, etc.)

As a research and development company we collaborate with Hungarian research institutes, universities, and other companies to develop and produce complete systems.

Our solutions are based on technologies like the physical layers of Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet standards; PCI-X, and PCI Express, and designing complex digital circuits with powerful FPGA-s. Our hardware products operate mainly in a Linux environment. We have also gained expertise in designing radiation tolerant electronics and are able to design and, with our partners, carry out radiation tolerance tests and measurements.

Last but not least, the executive manager of Cerntech, Kiss Tivadar serves as one of the two Industrial Liaison Officers (ILO) between CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory and the Hungarian industry.
