For the operation of the WASA (Wide Angle Shower Apparatus) detector system at the Cooler Synchrotron COSY in Forschungszentrum Julich (FZJ) a new DAQ system has been developed, which conforms to the third generation of the DAQ systems at COSY. This comprises new readout electronics based on an optimized parallel bus with LVDS technology and FPGA-controlled event and buffer management. The new DAQ system has been successfully commissioned in autumn 2006. Further developments aiming at performance optimizations are in progress. The implementation status is presented and performance issues are discussed.
