Modern, general purpose high energy physics experiments are designed to record the events of physics processes which greatly differ in rate. Both rare signatures with trigger rates of order 1 Hz and minimum bias interactions with rates sometimes approaching 1 MHz have to be triggered at the same time. The typical means of accommodating these requirements within a limited bandwidth is to downscale individual trigger channels appropriately. This paper describes a novel procedure for finding an… CONTINUE READING
