I am trying to extend the life of some of our old hardware by
changing the front end to EPICS. The system consists of a bunch of CAMAC
modules that we made here at Argonne. I am
running EPICS 3.13.7 on an MVME172 (eventually, this needs to go to PPC).
I have a Hytec 2992 VME CAMAC Serial Highway Controller
and a CAMAC 3952 Serial Highway Crate controller and the EPICS
CAMAC stuff from CEBAF/JLAB/LANL.
When one of our boards I get Errors back from EPICS and the longitudinal
parity error light on the Hytec board. Enable commands seem to be doing
there thing despite the error messages and requested data seems to make it to
the data way as indicated by a CAMAC Dataway display board.
If I create another record, and point it at a Camac Dataway
Display, requesting data the values that come back from this are
Can anyone give pointers as to what is going wrong?
