A 32-channel FASTBUS module that uses switched-capacitor arrays to sample and store input waveforms at rates up to 30 MHz is described. The captured data are digitized using commercial 12-bit analog-to-digital converters and are routed to an array of dual port memories. The data in the dual port memories can be readout directly over the FASTBUS backplane or can be subjected to further processing by a digital signal processor mounted on the FASTBUS auxiliary card.
