SOLEIL is a third generation Synchrotron source located near Paris, France. During the last 18 years, 29 beamlines have been built and it delivers photon beams in a broad range of wavelengths available from Terahertz to hard X-rays. Today SOLEIL envision a major upgrade of the accelerators and beamlines toward a brighter light source. In order to address some actual obsolescence and to prepare systems upgrade on machine and beamlines to address new challenges, the microTCA technology is identified. This presentation will provide an overview of the ongoing work on microTCA, the development under progress, the organization build to address this technology in a collaborative manner and the roadmap for SOLEIL.
