30-years’ experience in HW/SW co-design and in the development of mission & safety critical real-time systems

Two HW/SW Product Lines: GeminiX and Design4Rail, together with Ancillary Engineering Services

70+ mission- & safety-critical (up to SIL4) projects completed all around Italy, Europe, Middle East and Far East

Welcome to NEAT

NEAT is a spin-off of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN), led by Simone Cabasino and Mario Torelli, which, starting from ’80, under the coordination of Prof. Nicola Cabibbo and Prof. Giorgio Parisi (2022 Nobel laureate in Physics), has fully designed and developed a family of supercomputers able to perform complex algebra calculations to solve Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) simulations.

Today NEAT is an independent company providing hardware and software Intellectual Properties (Products and Reference Designs, distributed under licenses) with ancillary highly specialised engineering services, to clients who play a major role in railway, avionics, aerospace, and industrial markets, helping them to implement mission- and safety-critical applications.

What We Do

The mission of NEAT is to lead all the new designs of high-availability, redundant, safety-related systems in Italy and to be increasingly competitive worldwide.

The strengths of NEAT are the technology know-how, the quality of the development process as well as the ownership of valuable development tools and other Intellectual Properties used as building blocks for successful projects.

NEAT is currently providing avionic systems, railway signaling systems and industrial control systems.


We analyze the system requirements and produce a “conceptual design document” to present to our customer the possible solutions.


Neat manages a huge and ever-increasing hardware & software database containing complete designs, plans and documentation.


We maintain a fully equipped laboratory allowing us to mount prototypes of our computer and to serve small productions.


NEAT is a fabless company that designs and develops custom computer systems, releasing to its customers the complete design kit.

Work With Us

We are looking for both recent graduates and PhDs from universities and experienced specialists to help us in building our embedded HW/SW systems, software applications, libraries, tools and frameworks in the mission- and safety-critical market. Send us your email to be contacted for an interview!

Latest News

NEAT @ InnoTrans 2022

From September 20 – 23 NEAT is going to exhibit at InnoTrans 2022 in Berlin. We are going to showcase our product lines, the last baseline of GeminiX HW/SW Platform (www.geminix.com), with new SIL4 certificates, and the new Design4Rail ecosystem (www.design4rail.com), encompassing among the others the GeminiX RBC Generic Product (GMX-RGP), the Horizon SW suite (formerly RaIL-AiD), and the Workplace infrastructure.

Visit us at Hall 27 – Booth 210.

Moreover, on Wednesday, September the 21th from h10:00 – 11:00 we are also co-hosting with railML.org at the Speakers’ Corner in Hall 14.2 the talk “Standardised and Interoperable Digital Twins with Schematic  Track Plans for ETCS Planning”. The talk will be also streamed on InnoTrans Plus platform (https://plus.innotrans.de/).
