When designing a control system for a new facility, one is faced with a bewildering array of electronic devices to use in the solution. There is, of course, no single correct solution because the constraints are Laboratory and project dependent. The major constraint applicable to the hardware choice for the Proton Storage Ring (PSR) control system was the(More)
The Proton Storage Ring (PSR),1 whose installation was recently completed at Los Alamos, is a fast-cycling high-current accumulator designed to produce intense 800 MeV proton pulses for driving a spallation neutron source.2 The ring converts long beam pulses from the LAMPF linear accelerator into short bunches well matched to requirements of a(More)
I am standing for Division Director Elect of Division IV this year and asking for your vote. This position is for next year, as a year in training, and then in the following two years the successful candidate will be serving on the Board of the IEEE primarily representing the interests and views of the members of the seven Societies and one Council that(More)
A CAMAC Serial Highway with auxiliary controllers has been developed to support data acquisition from typical synchrotron radiation experiments. The controller of the Serial Highway is the main support computer for the laboratory with high-quality peripherals. The processor in the auxiliary controllers was chosen from the same computer family. An essential(More)
The direct benefits of using CAMAC are already well known. However, the use of a standard, computer independent, input/output structure such as CAMAC can have considerable benefits in the software field. For the first time input/output statements and interrupt statements in a high-level language can intimately control the devices coupled to the computer.(More)
