Trends in Data Acquisition Instrumentation

  • George J. Blanar


Particle physics research demands unique data acquisition instrumentation in terms of speed, size, cost and architecture. This paper will focus on principal issues related to trends in high-speed, large-scale, economical, sophisticated instrumentation for high energy physics, heavy ion, nuclear and atomic physics as well as large scale astronomical experiments. Examples will be taken from experiments at many national laboratories including BNL, FNAL, CERN, SLAC, etc. as well as LeCroy Corporation’s 26 year history in the field of physics research instrumentation.

Finally, instrumentation needs for the next generation of high energy, hadron colliders including the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN will be reviewed and compared to current technologies.
