Figure 1 shows a picture of the MROD module (Muon Read Out Driver) that is used in the DAQ system of the ATLAS detector.
Details (schematics etc.) of this module can be found on the original MROD-X html pages

Second S-Link output: MROD-X => MROD-S2¶
Due to higher LHC luminosity there is a need for more output bandwidth than originally anticipated. A second S-Link ouput is created by re-arranging the firmware of the MROD-In FPGA. One of the inputs can now be configured under software control as second S-Link output.
