Abstract

A collaborating group of Yale and IBM scientists have developed a versatile data acquisition system, based on an IBM System/360 Model 44 Computer, which is now in routine use. Data acquisition is performed via an interface which features modular and digitally compatible ADCs, scalers and monitor registers, and which allows the experimenter to define up to sixteen independent events. The software system makes possible the processing of all incoming events by Fortran programs. Communication between the experimenter and computer is carried out by means of a display terminal which includes a 1024-1024 random point plotting CRT with a built-in characteric generator, and a function keyboard. Facilities are also included for control and monitoring of the experiment hardware and accelerator conditions. A multiprogramming supervisor enables several independent jobs to be run simultaneously, with inter-job communication facilities to enable analysis of data to be carried out concurrently with its acquisition.
