 The Emu Slice Test is a precursor to the CMS-wide Magnet Test/Cosmic Challenge. The intention of the SliceTest is to configure a full slice of the EMu detector. Such a configuration involves using, as much as possible, the final modules and (software) tools. The system should be able to provide a cosmic trigger, respond to an external trigger, and deliver its data to the central DAQ.
