The CALICE Collaboration

A data acquisition system is described which will be used for the next
generation of prototype calorimeters for the International Linear
Collider and could also the basis for the final system. The design is
sufficiently generic such that it should have applications elsewhere, be
they either ILC detectors or within high energy physics in general. The
data acquisition system will be implemented using FPGAs and built using
off-the-shelf components and networking hardware. The EUDET ECAL technical
prototype will be used to demonstrate the feasibility of this approach.
The design philosophy, the current status of the project and its aims
are presented giving an overview of the effort.
