The primary factors that affect the performance of data-acquisition systems are front-end resolution, I/O (input/output) throughout, CPU processing power, and disk storage performance. Computer automated measurement and control (CAMAC) provides a solution for these data acquisition system requirements. CAMAC-based systems are built to a nonproprietary specification conforming to ANSI/IEEE Standard 583. I/O subsystems built to the CAMAC standards which provide solutions for meeting these requirements are described. These systems can be distributed by a fiber-optic highway with 3 km/node and an aggregate throughput of up to 3 MB/s to the host computer
