FASTBUS review 1985

Description: The progress of developments based on the FASTBUS Specification DOE/ER-0189 for modular high-speed data acquisition and control systems is reviewed. Available hardware components and efforts in standardized FASTBUS software are summarized. The status of FASTBUS applications at research laboratories in North America is reported. FASTBUS work in Europe and Japan is presented in other papers at this conference. Due to the highly condensed nature of this review, background information and references from reports at the 1983 and 1984 Nuclear Science Symposia may be useful. 17 refs., 4 figs.

What`s new with FASTBUS and what`s it done in the particle accelerator laboratories

Description: The FASTBUS modular high-speed data acquisition and control system has been described in earlier papers. Implementations have since been made in accelerator laboratories world-wide resulting in clarifications, modifications and extensions. Of tremendous benefit to users have been FASTBUS Standard Routines. The availability of such standard software is unique for high speed bus systems and resulted from the involvement of hardware and software specialists in all aspects of the development. FASTBUS is the highest performance instrumentation and data acquisition bus in existence and its development was essential to handle the outputs of detectors used with high energy accelerators now in operation. It has been an important factor in recent experiments, including the Z{sup 0} measurements at CERN, Fermilab and SLAC. Also among numerous FASTBUS implementations are those for TPC systems at KEK and BNL. 2 refs., 5 figs.
