AbstractA microcomputer based hardware, the Time Interval Board, was designed and the software interface control program was developed. The board measures time intervals between consecutive pulses from a discriminator output. The data is stored in on-board 16K x 16 memory. The microcomputer empties and processes the data when the on-board memory is filled. Data collection continues until the preset collection period is finished or a forced end is initiated. During this period, control is passed between the hardware and the microcomputer via the interface circuit. The designed hardware is IBM PC compatible.
