A control and data acquisition system has been designed for the CDF silicon vertex detector (SVX) at Fermilab. The system controls the operations of the SVX Rev D integrated circuit (S.A. Kleinfeeder et al., 1988) that is used to instrument a 46000 microstrip silicon detector (W.C. Corithers et al., 1990). The system consists of a Fastbus sequencer, a crate controller, and digitizer modules. The authors describe the hardware design for the CDF SVX data acquisition electronics. The method chosen for integrating the SVX detector system into the CDF data acquisition network and synchronization with the Fermilab collider beam crossings are discussed. The sequencer, controller, and digitizer are described. Error detection and diagnostics are considered
