The NSCL Data Acquisition system is a general purpose nuclear physics data acquisition system for small to medium scale nuclear physics experiments. It can be combined with NSCL SpecTcl to form a powerful online/offline data handling system. It is in use at several university labs and, of course, the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University.
