Overview and performance of the FNAL KTeV DAQ system

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

KTeV is a new fixed target experiment at Fermilab designed to study CP violation in the neutral kaon system. The KTeV Data Acquisition System (DAQ) is out of the highest performance DAQ`s in the field of high energy physics. The sustained data throughput of the KTeV DAQ reaches 160 Mbytes/sec, and the available online level 3 processing power is 3600 Mips. In order to handle such high data throughput, the KTeV DAQ is designed around a memory matrix core where the data flow is divided and parallelized. In this paper, we present the architecture and test results of the KTeV ... continued below
