• This is the story of the physics signal from the detector to tape

• The level is undergraduate and targeted at non-specialist students (originally developed for physicists)

• The aim is to explain important concepts and terminology

• We will discuss electronics, trigger, data acquisition and related computing

• Topics are related, no 100% separation between the 3

• Trigger & DAQ do not live in isolation: context and more details for example in
