Experiment systems typically consist of a UNIX host, with one or more UNIX and PC workstations, called workgroup clusters.
Data acquisition systems supported by the Computing Division include a UNIX/VME based high rate data acquisition system (DART) used by a wide variety of fixed target experiments. Data Acquisition interfaces from these systems are supported to CAMAC, FASTBUS and VME.
The Computing Division also provides planning, systems, application software and consulting support for workgroup computing. The division provides support and trouble shooting for Fermilab-purchased computers and promulgates standards for computer configuration, computer backplane configuration, and I/O devices for PC and UNIX computers and x-terminals.
The division provides electronics and data acquisition interface support for a variety of modules in NIM, CAMAC, FASTBUS and VME, as well as test software and hardware for such modules.
