Abstract : The MINOS II/SDS 910 interface is now operational, including the ternary buffer, the A-to-D converter and multiplexer. The diagnosis of faults in the system and routine maintenance may now be performed much more efficiently, and it is possible to provide continuous bookkeeping and diagnostics throughout actual experiments. Some initial examples are described. A successful simulation of MINOS II at full scale has been achieved with an operating rate of 4 patterns per second. This simulation will provide a standard of comparison against which the performance of MINOS II may be checked. Some typical results are given. Three practical problems in upgrading the performance of the 1024-image optical preprocessor are discussed: stability and sensitivity at the diffuser output, and circuit difficulties associated with the storage tube.
