Using CAMAC hardware for access to a particle accelerator

Truter, J N J (1988)

Includes bibliographical references and index.


The design and implementation of a method to software interface high level applications programs used for the control and monitoring of a Particle Accelerator is described. Effective methods of interfacing the instrumentation bus system with a Real time multitasking computer operating system were examined and optimized for efficient utilization of the operating system software and available hardware. Various methods of accessing the instrumentation bus are implemented as well as demand response servicing of the instruments on the bus.
