This thesis describes the implementation of a general-purpose, microprocessor-based
The Hardware allows analog data acquisition from one to thirty two channels with 12
bit resolution and at a data throughput of up to 2KHz.
The data is logged directly to a Buffer memory and from there, at the end of each
109, it is dumped to an integral cassette data recorder. The recorded data can be
transfered from the logger to a desk-top computer, via the IEEE 488 port, for further
processing and display.
All log parameters are user selectable by means of menu prompted keyboard entry
and a Real-Time clock (RTC) provides date and time information automatically.
