Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) are a new class of photon sensors with single photon detection capability and high photon detection efficiency. They have been proved to be suitable for an increasing number of applications in science and industry. Nowadays, different companies are investing increasing efforts in SiPM detector performances and high quality mass production, such to make them a natural choice for an always wider field of applications. In this scenario, a flexible and easy-to-use system that allows the measurement of the main SiPM characteristics has become an important platform to exploit SiPMs in different applications. This system can also be used to setup a series of experiments aimed to train physics and engineering undergraduate and master students in detector measurements and statistics analysis.
