Using an IIDC/DCAM camera for beam display and analysis

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An IIDC/DCAM camera is used to the RHIC beams as they pass through a hydrogen jet. The data is transferred over a 1394 bus to a computer with a Linux operating system. A software process on that computer collects the individual frames and packages them into parameters within the RHIC control system's framework. This information is packaged to continuously update two primary types of clients: One type is responsible for near-real-time display of the images; useful in comfort displays, etc. The second is responsible for collecting data used in analysis of beam dynamics and properties like luminosity.
