  • Operational Characteristics of the CANAC Dataway

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):9 - 18
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1672 KB)

    The basic purpose of CAMAC is to provide a standardized method for transmitting data and control information between instrumentation modules and a digital controller. CAMAC encompasses both a hardware standard for housing the modular components of a system and an electrical and logical standard for the control "language" used in the transfer of digital information. The CAMAC specification contains... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1075 KB)

    The typical CAMAC system has a small computer attached to it. In the usual case, the computer acts as a repository for data generated by CAMAC, and also controls and directs the CAMAC operations. This paper discusses some of the aspects of the hardware interface, and also some of the interaction between the computer and the CAMAC system. View full abstract»

    Several computer controlled CAMAC systems are presently being developed at Argonne for data acquisition in low-energy nuclear physics. This paper discusses four of these. The systems are designed around 8K, 16-bit, Lockheed MAC-16 computers. A typical system includes two CAMAC crates and a complement of 15 modules. The crate controller in each crate serves as interface between the computer I/O bus... View full abstract»

  • Summary of CAMAC: Status and Outlook

    Is everyone going to use CAMAC? Probably not. Does CAMAC represent the latest thinking in data handling? Again the answer is no. However, one must remember that the time from conception to delivery of a computer makes it partially obsolete before it is ever used. This is the price of progress. A similar gestation time is inevitable for CAMAC. If we were to begin today, CAMAC would be different, bu... View full abstract»

  • Modification of the TRAC Ebers-Moll Model for Improved High Frequency and Collector Storage Time Predictions

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):71 - 83
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2060 KB)

    The present TRAC Ebers-Moll model is modified in order to obtain an improved high frequency prediction. This is achieved by means of a three lump Linvill model to account for diffusion transport of minority carriers in the base region of a bipolar transistor. The modified Ebers-Moll model obtained in this manner yields two pole representations for the transport factors in the frequency domain. The... View full abstract»

    In a previous communication the advantages and the performance of foil supported wires for counter arrays were described, and we hinted at rate limitations caused by voltage drop in the resistive foil. The non-uniform material properties which are never quite ruled out initially and often develop under irradiation, particle bombardment etc. - at least on the surface of organic foils, and the recen...

    Permanent changes in the frequency versus temperature characteristics of unswept and swept optical grade synthetic quartz AT resonators which are caused by fast neutron and Co60 irradiations have been investigated. Neutron damage shifts the frequency versus temperature characteristics of the unswept resonators upwards in frequency across the entire zero to + 120°C temperature range at a rate of 0...

    The fabrication and characterization of high purity germanium radiation detectors are described. These detectors are n-i-p diodes with a shallow (1.5¿) diffused junction and a noninjecting metal-semiconductor contact. The germanium has a net acceptor concentration of approximately 7 × 1011 cm-3 and contamination during processing was prevented by using clean procedures and a KCN treatment. Elect...

    We describe a system which makes use of the conventional means of controlling the terminal voltage of an electrostatic accelerator (FN Tandem) by shunt current from corona points. The voltage is sensed with a beam-deflection system or a generating-voltmeter (GVM) signal, or a combination of the two methods. The electronic design differs considerably from previous designs, the emphasis being placed... View full abstract»

    The fast neutron induced degradation of the electrical characteristics of n-channel GaAs junction field effect transistors (JFET's) operating in the Shockley mode (thermal equilibrium) was estimated previously. Advances in technology have led to the fabrication of devices with micron sized channel lengths which are capable of response at microwave frequencies. Short channel lengths, however, resul...

    An improved, low-noise, wide-band current preamplifier was developed for use with a fission counter having a 100-nsec electron collection time. The signal-to-noise ratio of the preamplifier and its insensitivity to component parameter variations and temperature changes exceed that of any commercially available unit. A differential version was developed to exploit the balanced configuration of the ... View full abstract»
