NSTX-U Control System Upgrades

This system can serve as a control system for any fusion device, including ITER.  Currently, the PCS calculates many complicated and disjoint algorithms every 200 microseconds, delivering the result in a heterogeneous set of outputs.  This is easily expanded to handle any input we can conceive, without output that can be delivered to many different kinds of target devices.  The inputs can be any combination of signals, digital, analog, or even packets over Ethernet.  The system is designed to be flexible enough to run in any configuration.
