A flexible data acquisition system consists of a data acquisition task which is coupled to and under control of, a data analysis task. The data acquisition task is designed to interface to CAMAC through one or more Kinetic Systems 3912 Type A Crate Controllers to a Digital Equipment PDP-11/34, and it configures itself at the beginning of each run according to a user-written CAMAC definition file. The data analysis task is a modified version of the Fermilab Multi Channel Histogram Program. It controls the flow of the data acquisition task, and also serves as a multi channel pulse height analyzer.
