Abstract : A split-BUS multiprocessor system for acquiring data and outputting the data in digital computer format has an electronic front end that receives data from one or more sensors and converts the data to digital form. An acquisition microprocessor operating in a polling mode acquires the digital data and stores it in a data memory. An output microprocessor operating in an interrupt mode extracts the data from the data memory and routes it to appropriate display and recording devices in digital computer format.
