In general, high energy cosmic ray experiment deal with a large number of detector signals. A few prime signal parameters are need to be measured, recorded on a coherent detection of signals, called trigger. Triggers are random in time. It is also necessary to monitor continuously the performance of the detectors. The authors' paper is aimed at developing a prototype of Data AcQuisition system (DAQ) catering the need of such experiments. The time-over-threshold measurement of participating pulses along with time-stamp is recorded on a valid trigger and pulse counting rates, trigger rates are need to be monitored periodically.
