Modern particle detectors produce large quantitives of infor mation which must be translated into a form which can be understood by a computer. It is this translation which is the subject of these lectures. After a brief review of particle detectors from the point of view of electronics, two types of data acquisition systems will be discussed. This will be followed by a description of the trigger system for one of the modern detectors, CLEO, and the last topic will be an introduction to FASTBUS as it is presently proposed.
