Abstract / Description:The data acquisition system of the MAGIC telescope processes the Cherenkov signals registered in the high resolution camera consisting of 577 PMTs. The analog signals are transmitted via optical fibers to the electronics hut where they are stretched, split into high and low gain channels and digitized with 300 MHz 8 bit flash ADCs. The digital data is read out by a multiprocessor PC which saves it to a RAID system and a tape library. The system has been designed to process data at a rate of 20 MBytes/sec which is required by the maximum envisaged trigger rate of 1 kHz. Tests of the complete readout chain show that the achieved dynamic range is more than 1000.
