Title: The evolution of the STAR Trigger System

The STAR experiment at RHIC has been taking data since 2000. During that time, new detectors have been added, RHIC luminosity has increased, and STAR’s physics goals have become more focused. The Trigger System has evolved in parallel to be able to provide more precise triggering capabilities at higher rates. In this article the major improvements to the STAR Trigger are described, along with the future upgrade path.
