Abstract
The STAR level-3 trigger is a MYRINET interconnected ALPHA processor farm, performing online tracking of N-track greater than or equal to 8000 particl es (N-point less than or equal to 45 per track) with a design input rate of R = 100 Hz. A large-scale prototype system was tested in 12/99 with laser and cosmic particle events, (C) 2000 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
