Abstract
The experiments of High Energy Physics (HEP) at the big accelerators with counter propagating beams serve for research on matter structure, properties and internal reactions. Contemporary HEP experiments are commonly done by elementary particle and nuclear physicists and engineers from many branches of technical sciences. The cutting edge level of technical complication of the experiments requires new research rather than off-the-shelf solutions. Such solutions are adopted as results of separate, large and expensive research programs, organized around a major experiment. One of the technical branches contributing essentially to the HEP experiments results is photonics and electronics. Recent application of fast, multi channel, distributed and synchronous photonic and electronic TRIDAQ systems, provides the HEP experiments with the improved space and time resolution at the measurements of positions, momenta and energies of elementary particles. TRIDAQ systems improve the selection processes of physical events (TRIgger part of the system), and the registration of relevant data (Data AcQuisition of the system). Part I of the paper discusses overall TRIDAQ system architecture, while part II of the paper shows TRIDAQ system solutions for BAC and CMS detectors, comparing the performance differences caused by two decades of system exploitation and design.
