In late 1975 the US NIM Committee initiated a study group, known as the Advanced System Study Group, to review the future data acquisition modular interface requirements for high energy physics. The final report1 of this group recommended the development of a new standard system, now known as "FAST-BUS," which would have as principal features improved speed by a factor of 10 over CAMAC; more generalized architecture to accommodate distributed parallel processing and fast pre-processing; special scan modes of particular use in high energy particle detection systems; and standardized bus structures and mechanics. This paper is a brief summary of current activity.
