A new data acquisition system has been installed for a muon catalyzed fusion (μCF) experiment at the RIKEN-RAL Muon Facility. Detector signals are digitized in a CAMAC-based system and accumulated by a CAMAC one board computer with MC68030 CPU (Kinetics K3976-Z1A). The accumulated data are transferred to a workstation (DEC Alpha-station 200) through a SCSI crate controller (Kinetics 3929-Z1B). On-line and off-line data analyses are performed on the workstation with the PAW++ package developed at CERN [1]. This DAQ system is easy to use and highly flexible so that it could fit any general application for CAMAC data acquisition.
