The Optical Redundant I/O Network (ORION) is a hardware-based fast communication system for feedback controls to be implemented at NSLS-II. It controls latency by eliminating traditional computers from the communication design. Redundant communication paths give basic single-point fault tolerance. This paper describes the peripheral infrastructure for data exchange between feedback control systems and diagnostics and the communication backbone.
