4kHz MCOR PS Control

Note: this memo doesn't describe all aspects of MCOR control but focusses on the fast control features. Other issues (ADC multiplexers, status monitoring, calibration...) are beyond the scope of this document. Also, this was put together very quickly and hence may not be free of errors...

Every MCOR channel features a state machine to manage a setpoint table for the DAC and 3 history buffers for the 3 on-board ADCs. (These history buffers record the same channel of the input MUX that is monitored by the slow readbacks).
