In this thesis, the design and implementation of the CRUSH is discussed. The maximum input rate as a function of various parameters has been measured. The results have been fitted to yield simple parametrised equations which can be used for modelling purposes. The CRUSH shows good performance, both in a stand-alone test and in a ROB complex setup, and is able to store event fragments at the maximum LVL1 accept rate of ~ 100 kHz.
