IOC Hardware

IOC means Input/Output Controller in EPICS terminology. It is a computer with physical interfaces to the instruments being controlled or monitored. For example, an IOC for temperature monitoring will contain an ADC to collect signals from temperature sensors. The sampled signals are processed by the IOC, e.g. calibration, and exported to the local network as EPICS channels (process variables to be precise).

IOC computer

EPICS IOC is a software running on a computer. The computer can be a Linux PC, vxWorks, RTEMS computers or some others. We are most likely to use Linux PCs as IOC hosts.

Interface hardware

We need:

IOCs must have drivers for those interface hardware.
