Paper Abstract

A fiberoptic link with a transmission rate of 1 gigabit/s is used in the ESO IR data acquisition system. The link connects the detector front-end with a multiprocessor system, based on T9000 transputers. The link not only transmits data -- the architecture of the system allows distribution of data to the multiprocessor system in a flexible and simple way. The paper describes principles of link operation, why this speed is required, and briefly the components used.
