CAMAC 040 - Pulse Train Output

Table of Contents

^General Description

This single-width module uses 16 bits of data. These bits are loaded into one of the three register counters. At the end of the write command the register counts down until the counter reaches zero. The counter may be started also from an external negative-going signal on the I/O connector. The train of pulse at 100 KHz rate is equal to the number of binary bits set.


CAMAC Commands
F(6)A(0)Reads module number
F(16)A(1)Load register 1 and start train of pulses from register 1
F(16)A(2)Load register 2 and start train of pulses from register 2
F(16)A(3)Load register 3 and start train of pulses from register 3
Z*S2Clears all registers
