The DØ level 1 tracking trigger uses data from the scintillating fiber tracker, the central and forward preshower detectors, the muon system and the calorimeter. Tracks are found in the scintillating fiber tracker with transverse momentum greater than 1.5 GeV/c. The tracks are matched with hits in the central preshower detector and the muon system for electron and muon tagging. Preshower clusters are also used for identifying photon candidates. These multi detector triggers are then sent to the level 1 Trigger Framework where they are further combined with the calorimeter to create the final level 1 trigger. This paper presents an overview of the level 1 trigger system with emphasis on the use of large programmable logic devices (PLD's) in an extensible system architecture that allows complex, multi detector triggers
