MicroTCA and AdavancedTCA are the selected platforms for the upgrade of the back-end electronics of some Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments at CERN. In this context, the CERN PH-ESE group launched in 2011 to perform technical evaluations of xTCA equipment with the focus on infrastructure components. The aim is to issue technical recommendations to the experiments and provide support for...
Hardware installation for European XFEL is a huge logistical challenge, since hundreds of boards have to be tested, programmed, maintained and serviced. DESY MSK department provides and uses an automated approach for programming MicroTCA boards - for post-production-programming and for in-field-update of all on-board memories. These are the key aspects: 1. Automated management...

We want to summarize the single cavity regulation with MTCA.4 electronics. Presented solution is based on the one MTCA.4 crate integrating both RF field control and piezo tuner control systems. The RF field control electronics consists of RTM for cavity probes sensing and high voltage power source driving, AMC for fast data processing and digital feedback operation. The piezo control system...

Digitization of signals is often an important issue of electronics of experiments. Most of the waveform digitizers are built on pipelined ADCs sampling signal of interest. An alternative state of the art solution for the conversion of short signals at GHz rate is based on capacitor arrays. We designed two signal digitizers using those two concepts. The first module is a 16-channel waveform...
