Title: Upgrade of MHD data acquisition system from ISX-B to ATF

Abstract

The data acquisition system assembled to study magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) activity on the Impurity Study Experiment (ISX-B) tokamak at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is being revised for use on the Advanced Toroidal Facility (ATF). The new hardware and software architectures are based on ISX-B experience and will feature (1) different modes of operation for strong various subsets of available data, (2) a user interface that requires less routine activity than the earlier system, and (3) continued support of calibration and testing measurements used on ISX-B. The new hardware organization and software components are described in detail.
