Standard Serial Highway Interface System (CAMAC)
|Publication Date:||17 September 1981|
[This Foreword is not a part of ANSI/IEEE Std 595-1982, IEEE Standard Serial Highway Interface System (CAMAC).]
This standard defines a serial highway interface system for use with CAMAC crate assemblies in accordance with ANSI/IEEE Std 583-1982, Modular Instrumentation and Digital Interface System (CAMAC), and with other controlled devices. It is based on ERDA 2 Report TID-26488, Dec 1973, and ESONE Report ESONE/SH/01, Nov 1974 (modified by subsequently issued supplements), as developed by the NIM Committee of the US Department of Energy,* and the ESONE Committee of European Laboratories.** A parallel highway interface system, also intended for use with ANSI/IEEE Std 583-1982, is defined in ANSI/IEEE Std 596-1982, Parallel Highway Interface System (CAMAC). A report essentially identical to ANSI/IEEE Std 595-1982 has been issued by the ESONE Committee as EUR 6100.
This standard was reviewed and balloted by the Nuclear Instruments and Detectors Committee of the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society. Because of the broad applicability of this standard, coordination was established with numerous IEEE societies, groups, and committees, including the Communications Society, Computer Society, Industry Applications Society, Industrial Electronics and Control Instrumentation Group, Instrumentation and Measurement Group, and the Power Generation and Nuclear Power Engineering Committees of the Power Engineering Society. The revision of this standard was in conjunction with the 1981 review (1982 issue) of the entire family of IEEE CAMAC standards, undertaken to incorporate existing addenda and corrections directly into the standard.
