This article describes hardware and software solutions to a need which is comprised of (i) acquisition of a large volume of high speed data with multiple time scales, (ii) control of various operational parameters of device and diagnostics, and (iii) processing and management of the acquired data for a large volume plasma device. The solution relies on the base of a VXI bus and uses a standard PC with a Windows 98/NT operating system and C as the programming language. The system is networked with the existing network with the result of allowing a large data storage space of processing facilities from any terminal in the laboratory.© 2002 American Institute of Physics.
