Camac-based nuclear data acquisition system Le Patourel, David Andrew


This paper describes a data acquisition system developed for an intermediate energy nuclear scattering experiment. Equipment standards of CAMAC and NIM were used together with a 12K minicomputer and an industry compatible magnetic tape driver. The higher level languages of BASIC and FORTRAN were equipped with subroutines that allow input/output communication with the CAMAC data acquisition system. The BASIC-CAMAC system proved to be most useful to the experimenter only taking second place to the FORTRAN-CAMAC system when data handling speed was of paramount importance.
