Abstract

The entire data acquisition chain, from the custom made front-end electronics to the Fastbus readout and data reduction module, for the digital readout of the SLD (see ref. [1]: SLD design report, SLAC-Report 73 (1984)) limited streamer tube Warm Iron Calorimeter and Muon Identifier is described. Also described is a Fastbus cosmic logic unit being developed to achieve the capability of reading cosmic ray events, also during the intercrossing time, for apparatus monitoring and calibration purposes.
