The MicroTCA is a key platform at the European X-Ray Free Electron Laser facility (European XFEL), being at the centre of timing distribution, data processing from large 2D detectors, fast digitization and processing of pulse signals as well as low latency communication protocol for VETO and Machine Protection Systems.

Following on our internal review from last year, we focus on integrating new MicroTCA based solutions into our facility to address current and future challenges. We continue to work on our FPGA development workflow, evaluating different verification methodologies. Finally, we have started looking into Machine Learning with FPGA as the base platform.
