Wow... CAMAC. I've only ever seen that in one place - AMANDA (the
precursor project to IceCube). We had (still in place, but powered
down) 4 CAMAC crates loaded with hundreds of channels of A/D cards
that sampled the waveforms coming up out of the ice from the PMTs
(photomultiplier tubes). All four are chained together, then to a
Wiener VME box (quite a fancy one) with a 200MHz PowerPC SBC running
LynxOS (a real-time UNIX).
I've never seen CAMAC outside of particle physics. I'm curious where
that MicroVAX has been.
