Title: Data acquisition system at Los Alamos P-9 accelerator facility

Abstract

The computer facility consists of 3 MODCOMP IV/25 machines coupled together via shared memory with each computer interfaced to a CAMAC system. A program named Z has been written to allow user interaction with the CAMAC data acquisition system. Central to the structure of this program are creation of new operator commands with ease, macro or multiple command capability and a flexible, general, multiparameter data acquisition algorithm. A CAMAC branch driver has been built to allow high speed communication with the data acquisition modules.
