The development of a computer based data acquisition and processing system


This thesis is a description of the development and use of BASOON an interactive, on-line computer software package. BASOON allows experimental equipment to be accessed by a digital computer via a data logger. All user programm­ing is in BASIC using a series of subroutines to perform the data acquisition. The relevant literature is surveyed and the equipment fully described. The necessary programming languages are described in sufficient detail to allow readers with limited computer knowledge to understand the system. A brief account of the development work is presented, followed by a summary of the system. A detailed description of the BASOON subroutines and the linking of the various programming languages used is presented to enable the system to be fully understood and implemented on similar equipment elsewhere. Program examples including test routines are included and discussed with recommendations to users.
