The front end electronics and data acquisition system for the SLD (SLAC Large Detector) barrel Cerenkov Ring Imaging Detector (CRID) are described. This electronics must provide a 1% charge division measurement with a maximum acceptable noise level of 2000 electrons (RMS). Noise and system performance results are presented for the initial SLD engineering run data. Bench tests and beam data demonstrate that the design goal for noise performance has been reached.<>
