The 3655 is a single-width CAMAC module containing a 16-bit counter and eight 16-bit set-point registers that are compared with the counter. The comparisons produce output pulses, and any of them can be used to either stop or clear the counter.

The comparisons also produce LAM status bits, which can be individually enabled to produce LAM requests.

A flag bit determines whether the counter stops with the last output pulse or whether it is cleared to produce repeating sequences of timing pulses. In the former mode of operation, additional pulse sequences are initiated either by programmed command or by external signal or contact closure.

The 3655 provides its own crystal clock, and the input frequency to the counter is software-controlled for any decade from one hertz to one megahertz. Input to the counter can also come from an external source. Two of the comparison scan set and clear the Dataway Inhibit.

Numbers in the eight registers (or fewer, if less than eight pulse sources are required) must be stored in increasing numerical order for proper timing of output pulses.

Two control registers provide programmable control of the clock frequency (one hertz to one megahertz), the number of channels that generate a pulse (one to eight), the assertion of Dataway Inhibit, and whether to stop or recycle after the last pulse.

All inputs and outputs appear on front-panel LEMO connectors as well as on the 36-pin PC connector at the rear of the module.
