The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) is currently upgrading equipment that is used to digitize transverse beam profile measurements. Emittance measurements were originally digitized using legacy equipment, known as RICE (Remote Indication and Control Equipment). This required 38 RICE modules distributed along the half-mile long accelerator simultaneously recording 4 channels each to populate the 76 data points needed to create a single emittance profile. The system now uses a National Instruments cRIO controller to digitize the entire profile in a single chassis. Details of the hardware selection and performance of the system for different timing structures are presented.
