Hello,

We are still using some CAMAC at the SLAC LCLS. We recently implemented EPICS control of our CAMAC, using EPICS IOCs in VME crates. The CAMAC serial communication is driven with an Acromag Serial I/O PMC card, containing an FPGA programmed at SLAC.

Our NSTX experiment (unfortunately) continues to use CAMAC. Our MVME-177 and Hytec VSD 2992 hardware has served us well and are ready to be retired and replaced with new hardware. I'd be interested to hear what people are using to drive their CAMAC serial highways. I asked a couple of years ago too, just looking for any updates.
