History - Electronics
A key element to the building of SHRIMP I was the design and construction of the electronics assemblies to control the instrument. At the time of construction, digital control and data acquisition was very new. In addition, the magnet field control had to be at the cutting edge to stay on top of the high resolution peaks. The electronics assemblies constructed for SHRIMP I are still largely in place today, a testament to the design skills and capabilities of the personnel of the Electronics Workshop.
