A CAMAC‐based LSI microcomputer coupled to a VAX minicomputer with a high (200 kbyte/s) transfer rate network make possible real‐time data processing and control of a data‐intensive plasma physics experiment. The system is constructed out of reliable, commercially available components. Most of the network software is written in fortran and is easy to maintain and modify. A description of its four software layers and illustrations of the type of experiments it has been used on are presented.
