Driver/Device Support sis3316/ip

We have developed a driver support for the digitizer Struck sis3316 which uses the Gbit-Ethernet interface on that card. To communicate with the digitizer we are using a C-library supported by Struck. The communication is based on the UDP protocol. Within the library unfortunately error cases are not threaded properly. We had to customize the library in some places that, e. g. Packet losses are properly handled. We are still in the process to integrate the time stamp of the card into the created EPICS record. I hope that it is possible to compare our implementation with the standard vmebus driver up to our meeting. I just ordered a MVME6100 to continue with the comparative tests.

Summary

EPICS Driver Support for Struck sis3316 digitizer using the GBit-Ethernet interface instead of VMEbus.
