The DOE supports development of technologies essential to experiments in nuclear physics. The channel count of modern nuclear physics experiments has risen into thousands. There is need for cost effective, high density data acquisition (DAQ) systems with many thousands of channels. Our approach will permit. The objective is to develop a digital DAQ systems at cost comparable with the application- specific integrated circuit (ASIC) implementations. The objective is to develop cost effective digital DAQ electronics providing dozens of channels of waveform digitization, on-board FPGA, Ethernet, USB-2, and VME interfaces, and on-board processor running Linux. Future applications will include nuclear physics, high energy physics, nuclear astrophysics, homeland security, and education. Public will benefit through electronics that will be more flexible and cheaper than current electronics.
