DAQMB rev 4 is produced for FAST site in 2001. 
DAQMB rev 7 is CMS final production, produced in 2004/2005.
DAQMB collects the CSC data from CFEBs(Strip charge information) and TMB (Anode timing information, Anode and Cathode trigger information), and sends the data to computer via a Giga-bit Ethernet card in rev4, and to DDU via TLK2501 Gigabit link in rev7. It is a 9U slave VME board. It talks with VME controller through the P1 connector (A24D16). It talks with CCB and TMB through the custom backplane.
