A readout electronic system for a jet-chamber-type cylindrical drift chamber has been constructed for nuclear experiments at the KEK proton synchrotron. The system handles amplitude and timing information of signals from 384 resistive sense wires, and is able to record multiple hits up to 4 per wire. For detecting composite particles together with minimum ionizing particles, the system was designed to cover a wide dynamic range. A multiprocesser system with use of VERSAbus and MC68000 microprocessors has been developed for fast data handling and for communication with a host computer.
