HSI - Event Building


Information on an event is contained in many detectors. In order to reconstruct the event, event fragments from the detectors must be combined. In the past processors have been used to build events but LHC rates will require this function to be performed in hardware. Research is currently focusing on solutions which would use large commercially available switches to build events. These switches could come from the telecommunications industry where large switches are used in telephone exchanges or from computing companies using switches to cluster processors.
