MicroTCA is a candidate platform for the upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments at CERN. The CERN PH-ESE group launched in 2011 the μTCA evaluation project whose aim is to perform technical evaluations and provide support for selected components. Products tested are shelves, MicroTCA Carrier Hubs (MCH) and power modules (PM). The project includes the electrical evaluation of PMs, ... More

The FAIR facility involves a long chain of accelerators which need to be tightly synchronized. This is achieved by using by using a timing system based on White Rabbit (WR). FAIR Timing Receiver Nodes (FTRNs) are part of the FAIR General Machine Timing System. FTRNs receive and decode broadcasted network messages in real time. One of the form factors to be used in the facility will be the MT ... More

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is building the LCLS II facility. It is a 1MW superconducting Free Electron Laser (FEL) facility capable of producing soft and hard x-rays. There will be about 300 different kinds of Beam Position Monitors (BPM) installed at the LCLS II facility. We have come up with the conceptual design for stripline, button, L-band cavity, and X-band cavity BPM electronics ... More

During the last year, DESY has nearly finished the design of all digital and analog boards for the XFEL Low-Level-RF system. The boards with the widest application fields are being licensed to industry, so they are available for customers outside of DESY - either in industry or in other research facilities. This is a new approach that DESY follows. It helps sharing our experience and knowledge wit ... More

Reliability, flexibility, scalability and timeliness are only a few functional requirements a machine protection system (MPS) is permanently confronted with. This presentation tries to show how the newly developed µTCA-based MPS for FLASH2 and XFEL tries to fulfill these requirements with reasonable effort. The chosen hardware, the MPS-internal fiber optical communication topology, the multitude ... More

This contribution describes the design of an MTCA.4-based Rear Transition Module suited for direct sampling of signals in a bandwidth of 5-700 MHz. The RTM is fully compliant with the DESY Analog class A1 recommendation and features RF backplane support. The board consists of 8 feed-through channels(AC or DC coupled), 1 vector modulator channel and a low-noise clock generation and distribution c ... More

Sirius, a new ultra-low emittance (0.28 nm.rad) synchrotron light source, is currently under development at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS). Sirius's beam position monitor (BPM) and fast orbit feedback (FOFB) systems will adopt MicroTCA.4 infrastructure for its electronics and communication. Sirius's most stringent BPM specification is the electron beam position monitoring noi ... More

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 in ... More

The stable and reproducible generation of a high average brilliance photon beam at Free Electron Lasers requires a high-precision radio frequency regulation of the accelerating fields inside the cavities. ELBE (Electron Linac for beams with high Brilliance and low Emittance) is a multi-purpose radiation source at HZDR (Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf). The LLRF system controls two normal cond ...

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has two microTCA collaborations with other laboratories. These collaborations are to developed BPM systems with European Spallation Source (ESS) and Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL). The ESS collaboration is designing a new Rear Transition Module (RTM) that can be used as a BPM interface and as a LLRF interface for a development system. The PAL collaborati ... More

FLASH is running reliably 24/7 in user operations since a few month with 20 MicroTCA crates. First installations are available for the European XFEL as well. During the next months this installation will grow to about 200 crates. Both facilities are equipped with commercial of-the-shelf products and with in-house designs. The talk will give an overview of the installations and the status of the bo ... More

The European-XFEL project requires a powerful computing module for the Low-Level RF system. The processing power will be provided by CM045 module delivered by Vadatech – a fruit of successful commercialization of DAMC_TCK7 module developed for DESY by DMCS. About 100 boards will be ordered and will have to be carefully evaluated before installation in the accelerator tunnel. Manual testing of ev ... More

We have been developed micro-TCA boards for LLRF controls. Multi AD/DA board has been used at cERL (test facilities for electron recovery linac), STF (superconducting rf test facility) and super KEKB. The board is controlled by EPICS on the FPGA (Virtex5-FX). Recently, we have also developed MTCA.4 board for multi-cavity control. I will also report this board.
