We have written EPICS support for such a module.  It is a model 556 AIM from
Canberra.  This is an Ethernet multi-channel analyzer which is used together
with one of their ADCs.  We typically use it for spectroscopy applications,
measuring the pulse-height spectrum of an energy-dispersive detector (Si(Li)
or Ge).
