  The GBT integrates many varied components. The system uses both NRAO produced devices and off-the-shelf electronic instruments, which requires us to support many different styles of hardware interfaces. The variety of interfaces that we were required to support has resulted in the ability to integrate new devices into the system with a minimum of work, both on hardware and software engineering. Integrating a ``foreign'' device is described in Sect. 4.5.
