Description

At XFEL accelerator almost 150 MicroTCA crates will be synchronized with a picosecond stable timing signal. An overview of this timing system based on MicroTCA.4 technology, responsible for triggering components like lasers, kickers, etc in XFEL and FLASH accelerator will be given. The presentation will give a look into design of hardware, drift and length compensated signal distribution, user interface configuration and into the current setup in different facilities at DESY.
