The PAMELA experiment is a satellite-borne telescope primarily thought to explore the antimatter component of the cosmic rays. The instrument core is a permanent magnet surrounded by several instruments with different issues. Besides the TOF (Time-of-Flight), spectrometer, calorimeter, an anticoincidence system and a neutron detector, the experiment has an on-board computer responsible of the whole acquisition and housekeeping. In this work we will show the Data Acquisition flux for PAMELA, explaining the read-out mechanism from the Front End to the on-board CPU.

Abstract

The PAMELA experiment is a satellite-borne telescope primarily thought to explore the antimatter component of the cosmic rays. The instrument core is a permanent magnet surrounded by several instruments with different issues. Besides the TOF (Time-of-Flight), spectrometer, calorimeter, an anticoincidence system and a neutron detector, the experiment has an on-board computer responsible of the whole acquisition and housekeeping. In this work we will show the Data Acquisition flux for PAMELA, explaining the read-out mechanism from the Front End to the on-board CPU.
