Data Rates

FADC system

Estimate:
2 bytes/sample
32000 samples/(trigger*channel)
4 channels/card
16 cards
10 triggers/s
------------
40960000 bytes/s (41MB/s)

Measured:
Currently, 10MB/s is the best measured continuous transfer rate over the VME backplane.

PMT-PSEC system

2 bytes/sample
256 samples/(trigger*channel)
60 channels
1 trigger/10us (readout)
60us/event gate
10 events/s
------------
1843200 bytes/s (2MB/s)

MRD & Forward-veto

32 bits/(trigger*channel)
1 byte/ 8 bits
362 (MRD) + 26 (FV) channels
10 triggers/s
------------
15520 bytes/s (16kB/s)
