The Dataway defined in IEEE Std 583-1975, Modular Instrumentation and Digital Interface System, is the basis for all CAMAC* systems. It provides the means of interconnection between modules and a crate controller within one crate. This standard defines the CAMAC Parallel Highway Interface System for interconnecting up to seven CAMAC crates (or other devices) and a system controller. The Parallel Highway, so called because the data bits are transmitted along the Highway in parallel, is capable of handling higher data rates than nonparallel highways. However, in some applications, for example, where there are long distances between crates or where simplicity of interconnections is particularly important, the Serial Highway of IEEE Std 595-1976, Serial Highway Interface System (CAMAC), may be more suitable.This standard defines the signals, timing, and logical organization of the connections from crate controllers and Parallel Highway Drivers to the Parallel Highway through a standard connector. The internal structures of crate controllers and Parallel Highway Drivers, and the physical construction of the Parallel Highway System are defined only where they affect compatibility between parts of the system.

Standard

The interface system on which this standard is based was developed by the ESONE Committee ofEuropean Laboratories with the collaboration of the NIM Committee of the U. S. Energy Researchand Development Administration (ERDA). This standard is supplementary to IEEE Std 583-1975Modular Instrumentation and Digital Interface System (CAMAC), and is based on ERDA ReportsTID-25876, March 1972 (corresponding to ESONE Report EUR 4600e) and TID-25877. The mandatory features in this standard are identical to those in the proceeding reports and in the corresponding publication of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) that is currently being processed. A serial highway interface system, also intended for use with IEEE Std 583-1975, is defined in IEEE Std 595-1976, Serial Highway Interface System.
