EtherFIP: developing a WorldFIP/Ethernet gateway for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN

At CERN, the European laboratory for particle physics, work is well underway on the new circular particle accelerator Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which will be operational around 2007. Certain control systems in the LHC use WorldFIP fieldbusses, and in order to supervise these systems more efficiently a gateway is being designed. The gateway connects the WorldFIP fieldbus to an Ethernet network where an ordinary PC or Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) can be used for monitoring and controlling the control systems. This thesis describes part of the development of the above-mentioned Ethernet/WorldFIP gateway.
